Possibly one of the most unusual bridges in Amsterdam is the 93-metre red snake-like bridge between Sporenburg and Borneo Island. Designed by architecture firm West 8, the bridge was built in 2001 and is known as the Anaconda or Python Bridge. It won the International Footbridge Award in 2002. Another fascinating sight is the Jan Schaefer bridge, which passes right through the middle of Pakhuis De Zwijger. Completed in 2001 and spanning the 200 meter-wide IJ harbour, the bridge was designed so that it can be dismantled during Amsterdam’s extravaganza of sailing vessels - Sail Amsterdam - held every 5 years - West 8

Daeyand Gallery and House, Seoul
Built for the Daeyang Shipping Company to display its collection of art, which spans from ancient Korean artifacts to cutting-edge contemporary works, the project occupies a hilly site in a posh residential section of Seoul. It comprises three pavilions—a guest residence, an event space, and a reception area—that emerge from a reflecting pool on the roof of a sprawling, lower-level gallery.
As inspiration for the plan, Holl used a drawing he discovered in a John Cage book of a 1967 musical score by the Hungarian-Canadian composer István Anhalt. Holl followed the sketch to a tee: two rectangular-ish shapes in the upper-left and -right corners (which he used as the footprints of the events pavilion and guesthouse), pierced from below by a vaguely sword-shaped element (now the reception space with the wine bar). He recast the spaces in between as the building’s reflecting pool. “Music, in the form of the graphic of the score, was a heuristic device provoking the three-pavilion concept piercing the sheet of water,” Holl explains.
