Hydra Pier, Haarlemmermeer Netherlands

Asymptote contributes this project to the historical Hydra Pier in Haarlemmermeer, Netherlands. One part of the shelter overhangs an outdoor landscape, and another part provides multi-media event space.

The municipal pavilion acknowledges that it is actually below sea level, speaking of the pumps and devices that keep the land dry. A curtain of water greets the visitor at the entrance. An artificial landscape spreads out from there. It was completed in 2002.
