The new Dutch film museum, EYE, opens

• March 15, 2012

EYE, the new Dutch film museum, opens to the public on 5 April 2012 in its brand-new building designed by the Vienna-based firm Delugan Meissl Associated Architects.

The Amsterdam Metropolitan Area is bursting with activity in 2012. After a multi-year renovation project, the Stedelijk Museum will reopen with an eye-catching new façade. And the redevelopment of Amsterdam Noord on the north side of the IJ waterway continues to take shape with the grand opening of the EYE Film Institute’s striking new building.

EYE’s new complex was designed by the renowned Austrian firm Delugan Meissl Associated Architects, which was also responsible for the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart. Their design was governed by two motives: plural perspective and physiological effect. Along these lines, the entire building is a reference to the cinema-going experience as a game of light, space and movement. The white roof covering the building refers to cinematography and the façade reflects light in constantly changing conditions.
