Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam - Amsterdam - Netherlands

The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam is an international museum dedicated to modern and contemporary art and design.

The historic building of the Stedelijk is thoroughly renovated to house the first comprehensive installation of the museum’s renowned permanent collection of modern and contemporary art and design. At the same time, a boldly contemporary new building designed by Dutch bureau Benthem Crouwel Architects is constructed to house the museum’s influential temporary exhibitions and a range of public amenities. The new 10,000 square meter structure (98,400 square feet) re­orient the entire Museum to face onto the great public lawn of Amsterdam’s Museumplein (Museum Plaza), creating an active common ground for the first time among the Stedelijk and its neighbors, the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and the Concertgebouw.
