In 2007 Studio Makkink & Bey, together with, amongst others, Atelier NL, Maarten Kolk, Lucas van Vugt, Florian Visser, Yep Wiersma and stichting Herbergen, activated the project ‘designers & artists in residence Noordoostpolder’. The starting point for this project was the Noordoostpolder itself for research and design. The Noordoostpolder is a region in the province Flevoland, Netherlands.
Now, 10 years later, the landscape and property development of the Noordoostpolder will again be the focus point in the ‘House of Arts’ exhibition. The farm and premises of Studio Makkink & Bey in Kraggenburg, Noordoostpolder, will again serve as laboratory. In past years the province of Flevoland in general and especially the polder has resulted in a couple of interesting research projects within the studio. In Polderscape all projects have been brought together and become a new ‘working landscape’ in the future polder.
