Walking in a city you don't know so well is always full surprises. I noticed this "Hobbit home"? next to the New Institute, the former named Architecture Institute in Rotterdam.
You could enter for free.
Once inside I was surprised by unknown and strange plants and trees that evoke the sense of an exotic oasis.
A view up.
There was a man, a doll? lying in a hammock. At a closer look he happened to be a real guy, but he didn't move a bit and had his eyes closed, A bit scary it was, was he a homeless taking a rest?
On the door were some texts.
I did some research and this is part of an exhibition Yourtopia of the New Institute. I give you the explanation here.
"An oasis of calm in the middle of the city. The New Pavillion stands on the grounds of the New Institute. This temporary pavillion was designed by architecture office SeARCH. Bjarne Mastenbroek, the founder of the office, describes the design as a Yourtopia, a vision of living in the early 21st century that is as personal as it is utopian. The steel structure of the domed pavillion recalls traditional nomadic huts such as igloos and yurts. The exterior is overgrown with grass. Inside a world of serenity almost totally secluded from the world outside, the pavilion is where you can find calm."
I still don't know if the guy in the hammock was real or not, it was mysterious.
