AN ARTISTIC JOURNEY

A visit to the restored Stedelijk Museum is a spellbinding experience. And the visitor logistics system is a work of art in its own right.

Description

From the outside, it looks like two separate buildings. Inside, the transition is invisible. Amsterdam’s Stedelijk Museum – a world-leading institution of modern art and design – celebrated the opening of its futuristic annex in September 2012. As part of the complete renovation of the historic structure designed in 1895 by A.W. Weissman, a bold new wing was added by Benthem Crouwel Architects to provide much-needed space for temporary exhibitions. Although radically different in appearance from the 19th century red-brick architecture, the white annex – nicknamed the bathtub – is perfectly matched in scale to the original structure and seamlessly connected on all floors both visually and logistically.
