jo taillieu architecten


An abandoned building. Never again suitable for the expectations of its day. Still meets the regulations. But couldn’t these expectations perhaps not expected differently as well? Shouldn’t a psychiatric center be expected to be as an expected ordinary hospital? No abandoned building. But a new place to stay. The building should be as the building was. As its best. A place as how a plaza should be. Today.
