MVRDV has devised and built the Valley building in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
The dramatic, geology-inspired, plant-covered Valley stands out in Amsterdam's Zuidas neighbourhood with its three towers of 67, 81 and 100 metres and astonishing cantilevered apartments.
The building distinguishes itself in several ways: it combines offices, shops, catering, cultural facilities and apartments all inside one building.
Additionally, unlike the closed-off buildings elsewhere in the Zuidas, the green valley that winds between the towers on the fourth and fifth floors is accessible to everyone via two external stone staircases.
