Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision

The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, designed by Dutch firm Neutelings Riedijk Architects, consists of five levels above ground, plus five levels below ground.  Underground, the national archives of Dutch radio and television recording are filed around a canyon-like central void, with an occasional bridge for quicker access to one side from another.  Above ground are the media museum and the institute’s office spaces, which together enclose a large public atrium that rises from the void beneath.  The striking façade is a screen of colored glass by graphic designer Jaap Drupsteen that depicts famous images of Dutch television.
