Not in my backyard

Artist Rob Voerman is perhaps more accurately described as an architectural sculpture and much of his work has distinct shedlike tendencies. Above is his Not in my backyard made from steel, glass and polycarbonate which went on display earlier this year at the Biennial Open Source in Amsterdam. Here's what he says about it:
In the sculpture, various different functions/references are combined: shed, nightclub, church and bar. Slightly opposing the highly controlled/designed Dutch society.Occasionally the work will be used by local inhabitants in a somewhat informal way. Part of the work will be, that the vegetation around the work will not be controlled and grow wild during the exhibition
It's well worth having a browse around the rest of his work and the philosophy behind it.
Thanks to Lloyd Alter for the alert
