Dutch Profiles: Neutelings Riedijk Architecten

00:06:20 0
Neutelings Riedijk Architects design sculptural buildings with a powerful urban presence, often with striking facades as a result of well thought-out designs. Although they frequently cooperate with visual artists, Neutelings Riedijk do not consider themselves to be artistic.

One of their most ingenious projects is The Netherlands Institute for Image and Sound. In this gigantic archive almost one million hours of Dutch radio and television footage is preserved. Part of this collection is presented in the accompanying museum. And scenes from famous TV shows are incorporated in its colourful glass façade, designed by artist Jaap Drupsteen.

Neutelings Riedijk hold an ambiguous position regarding their Dutch heritage. Although innovation is not a goal in itself, the result of their design process is often very surprising.

The Dutch Profiles series was made as part of the Dutch Design Fashion Architecture (DutchDFA) programme, which ended in 2013. The series was then transferred to Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, which published it on ARTtube.
