SCENOGRAPHY MAATWERK / MASSARBEIT DAM Frankfurt, 2016
The past thirty years have been crucial years for architecture in the Low Countries, north and south of the border between Belgium (Flanders) and the Netherlands. While the public image of Dutch architecture has been dominated by the substantial campaigns promoting the ‘Superdutch’, during much of this period Flemish architecture has developed largely out of the limelight and has only more recently attracted the attention of the international media.
The presentation of architects from both Flanders and the Netherlands provided a new perspective on the apparently much more well-known Dutch architecture, and the productive relationships between representatives from these two architectural cultures which are so different and complementary, while simultaneously also connected by one language.
Veldwerk designed the scenography for Maatwerk/Massarbeit: Custom Made Architecture from Flanders and the Netherlands, exhibited at the Deutsches Architektur Museum in Frankfurt.
