content The Beemster is special due to it's spatial configuration and cultural historical value. Since 1999 this polder is a protected UNESCO global heritage site. Society is changing with great implications for the usage of the polder. The research project Des Beemsters investigates ways to conserve and strengthen the qualities of the polder within the framework of future spatial developments. The goal is to setup a development vision with the Beemster Building Box as aid. design The basis for the design are the two qualities that the Beemster is famous for. The first perspective is that of the plan, the geographical logo of the Beemster. The second perspective is that of the panorama. Within the panoramas line drawings envisage possible future changes to the landscape. The presented design is a sketch that does not yet include the panorama images as intended. The house style will be presented to the inhabitants in a website and regular publications will appear thereafter.
