a place to hide for Edward Snowden

Achterhuis

Maquette 1:1000/Canalbelt Amsterdam
This project is part of Archiprix 2020

This project is a spatial manifesto to address the importance of ‘transparency’ and ‘privacy’ by designing a place to stay for Edward Snowden in the heart of a liberal democracy. It is a public building, which contains a hidden and safe place for the whistleblower.

Spatial Encryption; a labyrinthine configuration of private, public and public spaces has been created in which the interaction between disappearing and appearing is spatially organized.
