A BUILDING IN HUMAN FORM
CORPUS, a museum in the Netherlands, is a 35-meter high transparent building in human form. The building, at Oegstgeest 35 kilometres southeast of Amsterdam was opened in 2008. Visitors walk through the figure and view the entire body through organ theatres, such as the beating heart, the sneezing nose and the brain.
Corpus is the dream of businessman Henri Remmers and is designed to educate visitors about all aspects of human health in a manner appropriate for children.
The steel framework has been tailor made around the emergency stairs in the torso of the body and has stabilising rings at each level. It's construction was completed in March 2008.
