Martin Van Der Linden Demonstrates The Orandajima House Afterschool Facility

Martin van der Linden , the creative mind behind the displayed work Orandajima House by Martin van der Linden spells out, The Oranda-jima House is a pro-bono design by Martin van der Linden for the town of Yamada-machi, a town located on the central coastline of Japan’s Iwate prefecture. On March 2011 the town was almost completely destroyed by the tsunami. Following extensive consultations with the Yamada-machi authorities, it was proposed in February 2012 to establish an after-school house and community centre. The project is named after the island where in 1643 a Dutch ship, called the Breskens landed in the Bay of Yamada. An island in the bay was commemoratively called Oranda-jima or Holland Island. .
