Into the Paradise Machine

The late 1960s saw the appearance across the Netherlands of Center Parcs, bungalow complexes for family holidays. Their design was rooted in both modernist and Catholic ideals. Architecture office Van den Broek and Bakema designed these parks, which all had an identical house style and spatial organization. Around 800 uniform single-family homes lie scattered around a lake in wooded areas. A covered hall houses a subtropical adventure pool and restaurants. Photo and video artist Niklas Goldbach accompanies his film with a live performance. He reads a selection of letters by Jaap Bakema, which the architect wrote when he was imprisoned in a German deportation camp in northern France in 1943.
