Description:

EYE Film Institute Netherlands is situated on a prime location at the bend of the river IJ, opposite the historical part of the city and the Central Station. The building is conceived as a highly tense and dynamic geometric solid.

The light is reflected in multiple ways by smooth, crystalline surfaces, thus subjecting the building’s appearance to permanent optical changes during the course of the day. Movement and light manifest themselves clearly as essential parameters for the film as a medium in the architectural production. The entrance into the building is characterised by continuous spatial concentration and directed visual relations. Spatial development, light incidence, and materiality define the path that leads from the southern glass front and the museum shop into the heart of the building.

The room widens successively, before unfolding its full dimensions as an architectural and functional focus. The interior’s architectural formulation defines the foyer and arena as central divisors which integrate all path relations into the overall functional concept.
