Almere - shortlisted
Competition brief: How to make a very cheap house (< 140.000 E) for Almere? Powerhouse answer: 1. Make it round (most m2 surface per m2 of wall) 2. Use foundation as wall (corrugated ground retaining plates) 3. One window (windows = details = $$$) 4. No facade (sink the house a little, as to use the excavated ground for facade). 5. Use the qualities of the site (in Almere, the only natural quality is the overwhelming beauty of the Dutch skies).
