Multi-function Centre De Meerpaal

This experimental scheme brings together a shopping centre, schools, a gymnasium, a library, a community centre and a medical centre literally under one roof. Its informal arrangement without thresholds and partitions steps off from a systematic, standardized configuration: stable steel parasols each atop an open column, in-between which are lattice girders overlaid with timber joists. This horizontal plane is kept independent of facades and partitions. This product of bilateral decision-making has since been altered and largely boarded up.
