A Collection of Stories

Emma Kroos


This project reflects upon the Noordoostpolder, a man-made region in the Netherlands. Over the years the region published ‘Structuurvisies’ which analyses the history and provides a vision for the future. At the core of these visions is the core of the Noordoostpolder. My aim for this project is to shine a different light on the region; using the sun as a method of planned unpredictability.
What you see is a collection of collaged blueprints.The Noordoostpolder characteristics come from research. Found images show cultural and physical characteristics, like architecture, religion, climate, and agriculture e.g. Through collaging, the images tell a different story from the Structuurvisies that creates space to rethink the region; like a visual philosophy. What if a building would be designed using this visual philosophy?
