3383 House of arts in KAF, Almere
: Pim Top

Whilst preparing the exhibition 'House of Arts', the farm of Studio Makkink & Bey in the Noordoostpolder served as a workplace for 'designers & artists in residence' who together developed this exhibition for Kunstlinie Almere Flevoland (KAF). KAF Expo shares new visions on the city with exhibitions and presentations. With the 'House of Arts' exhibition KAF celebrates the opening of the new building in Almere by SAANA architects.

A sharp analysis of the actual world issues, like natural disasters and refugee issues, resulted in smart design solutions that use the full potential of a district, building or product in this complex situation. In the exhibition a number of objects are being showed in blue foam as so called wishes for the future, being real or speculative. Every object serves as a question that will be studied by ‘the designers & artist in residence’. The exhibition is emphasizing the design strategy of Studio Makkink & Bey that urban planning, architecture and landscape architecture are indissolubly bound to product design.
