Sound and Vision arose in 1997 from a merger of three audiovisual archives and a museum, with the task of ‘managing and preserving the Dutch audiovisual heritage and making it accessible to a wide audience’. In order to fulfill this mission, it was necessary to move from nine locations in six municipalities to one central location.
The museum, the Sound and Vision experience, cascades up and seems to float at the top of the atrium. In the second upper step a huge, 80-ton heavy metal frame has been placed. This construction supports this part of the building.
The atrium side is fully covered with square aluminum plates of 55 x 55 centimeters. Here you see, depending on the light, the reflection of the colorful parts of the glass facades, the glow of the depots and the lighting in the atrium.
From the hall of the second floor a wide staircase leads to the large exhibition space. Together with the intermediate floors, this hall offers no less than 3300 square meters of exhibition space.
