When you are visiting Alkmaar, VVV Alkmaar is of course the starting point for your day out! They will tell you what you absolutely can not miss when visiting this beautiful monumental cheese town. They are located in one of the most beautiful icons of Alkmaar, the Waag building, where the cheese market takes place on the Friday between April and September. In the spacious store you will find a wide range of gift vouchers and of course real Alkmaar (cheese) souvenirs.
As a visitor, you go on an adventure and check out the technology hidden in walls of a house. You will also discover the building of the future. You can learn about concrete printing, discover how heavy work can be left to robots and see the possibilities in building materials from waste. The exhibition includes five biobased houses, in which no fewer than 30 different materials made from waste can be used as roofs, walls or floors. Everything under the sign of sustainable building.
Bruns realised the entire exhibition in collaboration with the client NEMO, designer Designwolf and Biobased Creations. Besides the biobased houses, various interactive furniture have been realised. Visitors can try out how to build a high tower that cannot be blown over, discover on which foundation a house stands most firmly or learn about the fast way of building prefabricated houses.
