This line drawing of a Polderscape maps out 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 piece has its own plot of virtual land and together they form a library. The virtual database provides a basis for new concepts for social design, new strategies and well-tailored products. In each design, Studio Makkink & Bey tries to connect elements of different scales and from different origin to create new utopias. The Polderscape was made for Sotheby’s New York, to benefit the Farnsworth House and the Glass House.
