70F Architecture’s Sheep Stable/Petting Farm [1] is nominated for a 2009 World Architecture Award [2]. The building’s open facade [1] allows for wind to continuously ventilate the entire farm, and its shutters open and close with the rising and setting sun, as if the structure itself ‘wakes up and goes to sleep everyday.’ This gorgeous petting farm in the Netherlands offers local families a chance to indulge in the beauty of nature and design in one setting.
