WaterSchool Alcova Milano

Studio Makkink & Bey presented the WaterSchool during the Fuorisalone Milan 2019 in fabulous Alcova, a former factory building. The ex-industrial space is partly taken over by plants and vegetation, giving it a state of poetic semi-abondonment.

WaterSchool is a speculative primary school designed and organised around water as an essential material, subject and social phenomenon.Within the framework of exhibitions, Studio Makkink & Bey acts as a curator, inviting upcoming artists/designers to present their work in thematic exhibitions and series of lectures.

In this edition Studio Makkink & Bey invited Minji Choi, Aliki van der Kruijs, Atelier NL, Ola Korbańska, Boris Maas, Adelaide Lala Tam, Philipp Kolmann and Giuditta Vendrame to contribute. In the exhibition there is an overview of our research, categorised in themes, being Clean, Grow, Harvest, Make, Build and Document. WaterSchool is a self-initiated project by Studio Makkink & Bey.
