It’s New!
The archives of MVRDV and Zaha Hadid Architects

22 October 2015, Het Nieuwe Instituut, Rotterdam
start 8:00 pm

This autumn the Rotterdam-based architecture practice MVRDV is transferring its archive to Het Nieuwe Instituut. It is the first major archive to be added to the State Archive for Architecture that consists primarily of digital materials. What does this mean for the preservation and management of this archive?

Contributors include Jacob van Rijs, one of the founding directors of MVRDV; Manon Janssens, head of exhibitions and archives at Zaha Hadid Architects; Suzanne Mulder, curator at Het Nieuwe Instituut; and Annet Dekker, expert on digital collections management. The discussion will be moderated by Maarten Kloos and Flora van Gaalen.
