3438 The NDSM Nurs­ery Square, 2019

: Lonneke van der Palen

Studio Makkink & Bey have developed an expanding public square in the NDSM area that will grow over a six months period, starting from September 2019.

Its base is a large floor grid that facilitates different set-ups with the furniture available on site in order to host and stimulate all sorts of activities organized with different intentions.

With unannounced interventions in the neighbourhood, film screenings, site-specific performances and a seasonal ‘artist-in-residence’ at the square – the language and gestures in public space are challenged towards new scripts.
