Since 1959, Bernd and Hilla Becher have been tracing the man-made testimonies to the industrial era in Germany, Holland, France, Belgium, Great Britain and the United States and document both the production plants and the houses in these industrial areas in photographs.


Industrial buildings are a remarkable building type. The architectural shape is completely functionality-based. In the 20th century, most of these buildings were taken down because they had served their purpose and were no longer a tenable economic proposition. That’s why the photographs of Becher remain the only visual record of these ‘anonymous’ structures.


This inspired Mieke Meijer to restore the disused industrial shapes and to place them into a new contaxt. By reducing scale and playing with volume, Mieke Meijer creates autonomous interior objects with an architectural feel. Gravel plant 02 is the second in a future series.
