With this exhibition ARCAM showed the scale models of Amsterdam cultural buildings that are in transition.
With among others:
EYE Film Institute Netherlands (Delugan Meissl Associated Architects), Stedelijk Museum (Benthem Crouwel Architekten), Museum Ons’ Lieve Heer op Solder (Claus en Kaan Architecten), Scheepvaartmuseum (Dok Architecten), Open Frame (Elastik and MAT Studio) and impressions of Rijksmuseum (Cruz y Ortiz arquitectos), Museum Van Loon (Vlaardingerbroek & Wevers) and Annie M.G. Schmidt Houde (arons en gelauff architecten).
Culturally, Amsterdam is experiencing a period which, without exaggeration, can be called unprecedented. Never before was so much building activity carried out in this field at the same time. Never before was cultural life so disrupted because major cultural facilities that are part of the city’s permanent programme are suddenly closed. This process seems to come to an end now openings of Scheepvaartmuseum, EYE Film Instituut Nederland en het Stedelijk Museum are on its way.
