MIET AIR offers (mainly foreign) professional sculptors the chance to work on a project for up to 6 months. During that time, the sculptor stays in one of the pavilions where they can work and live. In the 90m2 pavilion, people can work on their design and create wax, or clay models. For heavier and dustier work, there is a fully equipped workshop. There are also two 40m2 apartments available, with a limited workspace.
