Wiggling back and forth across an Amsterdam nature reserve, this curved timber maze by Dutch architect Anne Holtrop was designed to stage an exhibition of landscape paintings.
Made from untreated poplar, the Temporary Museum (Lake) had a lifespan of just six weeks.
Photography is by Bas Princen.
Here is some more information from Anne Holtrop:
Temporary Museum (Lake)
The drawings that were used to make the Temporary Museum (Lake) were made by chance.
Not likeness or beauty is its key aspect, as in traditionalism; nor logic or ratio as in modernism; but rather 'the possible' in the sense of what is merely conceivable, the idea that all things can be perceived and conceived differently.
Chance struck me as a way of making work that does not reference to anything specific.
But the mind of the viewer, like my mind, wishes to see things in them, like in a Rorschach inkblot. Jumping between different visions the mind projects its own ideas on it.
Each construction, each gesture is a new reality. So is the use of one of these drawings to make the temporary museum.
