Group A designs relocatable x-ray scanner 

The new X-Ray-Scan for Dutch Customs in the port of Rotterdam has recently been opened. The relocatable building houses a scanner for containers being shipped into the Netherlands. The advanced X-Ray technology, that makes it possible to see the difference between organic and non-organic material, is housed in a building that shows this dynamic process on the outside.

GROUP A designed a simple yet visually challenging building. The deep grooves of the aluzinc cladding accentuate the dynamic shape of the scanner. Their play of light and shadow adds another layer to the visual experience of the building.

The X-Ray-Scanner was developed in collaboration with Art & Build, Belgium.
