As if we needed another reason to go to The Netherlands... The exhibition "Playboy Architecture, 1953-1979" will be on view at NAiM/Bureau-Europa from September 29 to February 10. Created in collaboration with Princeton University, the exhibition will explore "the way Playboy magazine used architecture and design as important tools to shape a new identity for the American male." Check out Interior Design for a preview of the exhibition and slideshow.

Used architecture to shape a new identity for the American male? Very interesting. Indeed, another reason in a long list to go to the Netherlands.
