Arons & Gelauff Architects - Campagneplein Dormitory

The Campagneplein dormitory by Arons & Gelauff Architects features an artificial climbing wall on one of its facades. It looks like bouldering, leading and top-roping are all possible on the nine-story tall, 87 unit dormitory. I like that the facade has a program, something that would be impossibly difficult to do in the US. Not because of technical problems, but because of liabilities and bureaucracy.
