The Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, a leading international institution of modern and contemporary art and design, will reopen to the public on September 23, following an ambitious renovation and expansion project. The new building was designed by Mels Crouwel of Benthem Crouwel Architects and measures 98,400 square feet.
The existing historic building, which dates from 1895, was designed by A.W. Weissman and has now been converted almost entirely into galleries, enabling the first comprehensive display the Stedelijk has ever mounted of its permanent collection, among the most important in the world. The new building will provide new space for the Stedelijk’s renowned and influential temporary exhibitions, as well as a host of new amenities.
The Stedelijk Museum was founded in 1874, and is dedicated to modern and contemporary art and design. The Museum aims to provide a home for art, artists and a broad range of publics, where artistic production is actively fostered, presented, protected, reconsidered and renewed. The museum's holdings encompass more than 90,000 objects dating from the 1870s to the present and include painting, sculpture, film and video, installations, works on paper, artist books, photographs, graphic design, applied arts and industrial design. The innovative design also re-orients the entire museum to face onto Amsterdam’s Museumplein (Museum Plaza), creating a common ground for the first time among the Stedelijk and its neighbors: the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and the Concertgebouw.
