The BPD Art Collection is inextricably linked to the organization after more than 40 years of collecting. The collection was created to provide employees with a stimulating working environment and allow them to look at the world differently. In addition, BPD believes it is important to take a social position in support of the cultural climate.
For more than 70 years BPD has been contributing to the quality of people's living environment. We stimulate art and culture in different ways, both within and outside the organization. For example, the BPD Art Collection exists for more than 40 years. This contemporary art collection consists of almost 1000 works of art and is shown in the offices of BPD and in museums at home and abroad. BPD has also enables the BPD Culture Funds for 30 years. This national fund focuses on art and culture in projects that have common ground with building, the built environment, urban development, area development and public space.
With BPD Lab we connect alternative and inspiring practices of urban designers, public developers, artists and architects to current themes and the daily practice of area development. In addition, we reinforce art and culture with BPD Art Projects in relation to the area developments of BPD. This varies from the realization of art in public space to the development of a temporary art and culture program for a specific place or area.
