Dutch Atlas of Vacancy was part of the Vacant NL installation in the Netherlands pavilion at the 2010 Venice Architecture Biennial. The installation showed vacant state-owned buildings in the Netherlands. Every one of the more than 1.000 empty buildings was rebuilt as a miniature blue foam model and suspended from the pavilion’s double-height ceiling. Curators Rietveld Landscape propose to develop a strategy for temporary use, to make these buildings available to the public, particularly to the creative industries on which the Dutch government is banking its future prosperity.

Commissioned by the Netherlands Architecture Institute.
