Winy Maas:

“The Glass Farm that I designed and built in Schijndel, my hometown, is disguised as an old farmhouse but its walls and roof are actually made from glass. The building contains shops, restaurants, offices and a health centre, whilst maintaining an element of nostalgic remembrance. According to many people, the Glass Farm is an object that transgresses memories for histories into the thinnest type of architecture you can imagine.”
