You’ll surely know by now that we have an innate love of all things modular. Modular construction allows for efficient repetition yet can result in flexible designs that are interesting and thought-provoking.  This is ever-present in Rotterdam’s Recycled Park – a modular park that floats on the river.

Bjarke Ingels, BIG’s founding partner, said: “The Twist…is [...]
