Fascinating Dutch Visitor Center at Fort Diemerdam in Amsterdam

Amsterdam Pavilion 1 Fascinating Dutch Visitor Center at Fort Diemerdam in Amsterdam

A new visitors pavilion and cafe was recently completed by Emma Architecten at Fort Diemerdam in Amsterdam, a historical defense line recently put on the UNESCO world heritage list. The undulating curves of the building’s walls were inspired by the surrounding landscape: “We wanted anybody visiting the building to be puzzled about when it was built, and whether it is the future they’re looking at or the past”, said architect Marten De Jong.

To do this, the building had to have little or no reference to architectural elements. A window or a door usually depicts a specific age of architectural thinking, which would make it easy to pinpoint the year of its creation.  Instead, the building comes forth from the landscape”. Paviljoen Puur has a total of three levels, out of which two are located above ground. The new structure can be rented for various events, such as presentations, meetings, corporate gatherings and weddings. How would you comment on the design of this Dutch visitor center?
