Photographer's Note

Almere is a planned city, located in a polder of Flevoland, it is the youngest city in the Netherlands: the first house was finished in 1976. The silverline tower contains 58 apartments, just outside of Almere’s town centre. It was built on the edge of the artificial Weerwater lake. The façade is made with aluminum cladding, like a tight skin -hence the name.
The meander form reinforces the logo-like singularity of this building while at the same time catering to market practical demands: there are plenty of takers for the top and bottom levels, far fewer for the middle. The middle has therefore been reduced to a minimum and the top and foot maximized. An equally rigid logic informs the distribution of windows, which is a direct reflection of the rooms they serve. Each window is positioned symmetrically in the central axis of a room. It is a high-rise building type and a deconstructivism architectural style. Source :
