Always a source of awe-inspiring design, the Netherlands continues to spawn phenomenal architects such as Willem Jan Neutelings and Michiel Riedijk of NEUTELINGS-RIEDIJK, the firm responsible for the immaculate design of the recently completed NETHERLANDS INSTITUTE FOR SOUND AND VISION. Located in the Amsterdam suburb of Hilversum, the building's most striking feature is its facade which features glass panels imprinted with fleeting, ghost-like imagery from Dutch television, giving the exterior a mildly blurry, stained-glass effect. Inside, the architectural marvel houses five underground levels of the national archives of Dutch radio and television, while the five aboveground levels contain a media museum, office space, and screening rooms. Catwalks connect disparate areas while textural elements, wide-open spaces, and subtle geometry intersects with sublime results. SEE FOR YOURSELF:
