You can’t miss the new theatre in Lelystad, the Netherlands, designed by UN Studio. A faceted building, clad in the colours of the setting sun, it is a project that makes its presence felt despite its relatively low height. The excitement of the exterior is not diminished as you move inside, to a series of spaces of complex geometry and bright colours, culminating in the womb-like, multisurfaced interior of the bright red theatre itself.

School Het Perron
Educational theories seem to be one of the fastest changing areas of modern life, as educators struggle to help young people fit themselves to our evolving and challenging world. How then can an architect design a building that will stand for at least 30 years, and accommodate change of which we have not even dreamed?

ThyssenKrupp Steel Kindergarten
“Understated, metallic and perfectly harmonised,” is how ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe describes its recently launched ReflectionsPearl® range, but it is also an accurate description the company’s colourful new kindergarten in Duisburg, which makes good use of the coil-coated steel façade system.
