Dutch architectural design firm MVRDV has unveiled its plans for a new building in the southern German city of Esslingen. The façade of the building, dubbed the Milestone, will include a number of innovative features and, according to MVRDV co-founder Winy Maas, it is designed to “… become a new symbol to reflect [the city’s] past heritage and future.” The building will be constructed of crystal rock-like glass blocks, designed to partially reflect back images of the city and its surrounding landscape. The blocks will stick out in some places, and push inwards in others, to create a pixilated, 3D appearance with an open public walkway right through the centre of the building. This walkway will extend up the building to a height of 40 meters, and will include stairs and terraces, allowing visitors to take in views of the nearby vineyards and surrounding hills.
