In the Depot Journal you can read everything about the realization of Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen.
The first edition (download here) focusses on the background, our desire to make our artworks accessible, MVRDV’s iconic design and the technical challenges we face. Also, you can read about the staggering number of works it will soon house (145,000!), and about the unique opportunities the depot will provide – for the museum, for collectors, and above all for our visitors. We hope to excite you, stimulate you and intrigue you, because you will soon be able to map out your own route through the thousands of artworks in the museum’s collection. You will be able to choose your own favourite, look over the shoulders of restorers and exhibition makers. Or you can enjoy the Grand Café on the roof terrace, the sculpture garden and the phenomenal view of the city.
This depot journal is the first of a series of six. If you would like to receive all the printed Depot journals by post, please send an email to email@example.com with your full name and address, reference ‘receive Depot Journals’. Or download Depot Journal #1 here.
