[trip #15] Music Building on the IJ by 3XN

Located at the head of the Oostelijke Handelskade is the new accommodation for two organizations devoted to modern and non-western music. Each organisation had been given its own identity in the new building. The auditorium of the BIMhuis has been inserted like a black box. The eye-catcher and unifying element is the roof. At its head-end the building has a large public concourse and functions as a public plaza. At the waterside is a wide square with an outdoor café on the water. The 24 meter high glass facade provides a panoramic view of the river IJ.

  1. I hate the creator of this blog for making me cry. I don’t know who the creator is, but I hate you. Every page is pure beauty; this should be illegal.
