The Biesbosch Museum in The Netherlands was recently renovated with a grass roof and expanded with a new wing for contemporary art by Rotterdam-based architecture firm Studio Marco Vermeulen. Located near the city of Dordrecht, the transformed building features hexagonal pyramids that are covered with grass and herbs. In a statement about the project, the architects say, “The roof adds ecological value, creating a sculptural object that reads as land art and, at the same time, manifests itself in the surrounding landscape.”
