New Rijksmuseum by Cruz & Ortiz Architects

Spanish architects Cruz & Ortiz were selected out of seven international offices to renovate the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
The renovation will be the most extensive since the original four-towered building by Pierre Cuyper opened in 1885.

Presenting the final draft for the "New Rijksmuseum" Cruz said the most dramatic change will be the reopening of two courtyards that were filled with a clutter of small exhibition spaces in the 1960s. Today, they are divided by a dark tunnel used by cyclists and buskers.

Great importance is paid to circulation and orientation and to maximize use of the existing stairwells. From the passageway beneath, visitors ascend escalators to enter a space connecting the east and west wings. Ticket desks are located in the light wells. The bicycle route in the original passageway is retained and the light wells are thrown open.
