NIO Architecten - Watermark
Watermark is a series of mock-ups of façade panels for a cluster of buildings with divergent functions; a music hall, a national soccer museum, a fast food restaurant, a school, a wellness centre and several outdoor activity shops for Middelburg, a Dutch city close to the sea. The panels are embodiments of moods that relate to leisure, crossed with various different characteristics of water: desire-whirl, arousal-cohesion, thrill-humidity, satisfaction-drop, curiosity-drifting, relaxation-rain, joy-floating, excitement-boiling, welcoming-wave and anticipation-ripple.

Maurice Nio (1959) graduated as an architect in 1988 at the Faculty of Architecture of the Delft University of Technology. He set up his own design studio in 2000. Projects include the enormous beetle/waste incinerator of Hengelo (The Hulk), the sound-barrier houses in Hilversum (The Cyclops), the Hoofddorp bus station (The Amazing Whale Jaw), the Wasco warehouse on the outskirts of Rotterdam (Black Mothafucka), the cake-like penthouse (A House for Brad Pitt) and the grey-red tunnel in Pijnacker (Touch of Evil).
