3214 Polderscape Glasshouse for Sotheby's NY, 2010

Sotheby's New York, A Project to benefit the Farnsworth House and the Glass House

This drawing of a Polderscape shows a typical Dutch polder: a gridded topography that closely resembles its real-life rendition. Our studio's projects, products, small pavilions, furniture and public space projects are fit inside this diagram. Each has its own plot of virtual land, together they form a library. The virtual library provides a basis for new concepts for social design, new strategies and well-tailored products. To this end, Studio Makkink & Bey tries to connect elements of different scales and from different origin to create new utopias.
