4043 Buitenbeeld, 2005

city government of Vlaardingen

The field situated at the Buys Ballotlaan in Vlaardingen is meant to be transformed into a sculpture garden over the next couple of years. Studio Makkink & Bey perceives this area as an outdoor living room and placed a big concrete table and a chair. The table is big enough to seat a party of 12, but has one special bronze chair for a single person to sit at the table and claim it for themselves. At the head of a table there's a tree is that blossoms during spring time and carries fruit during summer time. The light that hangs in the tree makes it possible to repose and read a book there in the evening.
