Dutch Profiles: Neutelings Riedijk Architecten

Architects Neutelings Riedijk design sculptural buildings with a powerful urban presence, often with striking façades 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.

Dutch Profiles is a series of short documentaries focusing on the conceptual and research based background of well-known icons of Dutch design.
