Water tower models
|Models by Mieke Meijer|
|The water tower models below are made by Mieke Meijer, a Dutch designer. She is very much inspired by industrial architecture and the photographs of Bernd and Hilla Becher.|
The models in the photos are aluminium castings. There have been a few problems with the casting process, which is why these first models are showing some imperfections. Once the casting process has been perfected, water tower models will probably be produced in small series or as limited editions. I took the photos in November 2018 at an art gallery in Eindhoven.

The most noticeable imperfection is that the lower parts of the tower legs are missing (these parts were added later). Mieke Meijer is also visible in the photo, which provides a good indication of the size of the water tower model. (The photo was taken by Beeldenstorm, which is the organisation/workshop where Mieke Meijer is casting her water tower models.) /Wilco Krul.
