MVRDV has taken an unusual approach to getting residents in Bordeaux excited about a neighborhood plan it designed. The Dutch firm has erected an attention-grabbing rendition of the 35-acre Bastide Niel development in a public square—and people are invited to wander through the whimsical creation.
The installation features a collection of blue buildings perched atop metal stilts. “The roofscape with its characteristic spires can be observed from elevated tennis chairs,” notes MVRDV. The development will contain approximately 2,400 homes, along with shops, offices, and other facilities. See more photos after the jump!
