Last Thursday, the iconic Theater ‘t Speelhuis designed by Dutch architect was destroyed by a large fire, additionally damaging the eighteen cube houses surrounding it. The theater is considered a treasure to the residents of . Despite the local outcry to rebuild the Theater’s Playhouse, Mayor Jacobs is uncertain on whether that will happen, stating it would be “difficult”.

The eighteen cube houses that surround the fire has experience smoke and water damage, so they do not need to be demolished. However, thirteen of the fifty households within the vicinity of the theater have no insurance and it is unsure if they will be reimbursed for the damage.

The cause of the fire is still unknown, however sources speculate it was a shortage in equipment. There were no reports of anyone hurt, however valuable paintings of artist Har Sanders was also destroyed in the fire.

Our friends from the Iceland Design Centre Blog shared with us this interesting news. Open the Tower exhibits 676 models in a scale of 1:1000 designed by Eurohigh. The project was led by architect Winy Maas, Alexander Sverdlov and Ania Molenda of The Why Factory in collaboration with KRADS and supported by Lego and Arup.

The exhibition is the result of a 2-month-long research period on the ultimate European skyscraper, and the models are presented in a grid of 26 linear iterations. This exhibition is on display at the Tu Delft Faculty of Architecture. This work will continue until January 2012 and it will be in continous exhibition until February 2012.
