IMd pavilion – Rotterdam

building a pavillion on top of a crane

As a next level and showcase of construction methods a large team engineered a 3D-printed folly on top of a crane, to be used as meeting space. This is an addition to the office of IMd in the iconic industrial building from the 1950's that was renovated in 2011 (and we personally worked on) and was a signpost for the new phase of this company.
