architecture studio MVRDV has designed a temporary structure for a photography festival in breda, a city in the southern part of the netherlands. titled the ‘infinity path’, the scheme takes the form of a raised path that offers views of the city, while providing wall space to display photos as part of the biennial event. the design of the structure responds to the square itself, which was designed by urban design firm west 8. the elevated route follows the existing pattern of the plaza, bringing a new dimension to the space.
