The Netherlands Architecture Institute's Treasury (in Dutch 'Schatkamer') is a 250 square meter exhibition space displaying 100 of the most prized objects from its extensive architectural archive. It was designed to make architectural artifacts attractive to an audience foreign to the field.
Make architectural artifacts attractive to a dual audience of architects and visitors foreign to the field.
I worked on this project as a designer at the Office for Metropolitan Architecture in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
From concept development to construction, I worked under the direction of Saskia Simon, playing a leading in decisions concerning the curatorial approach, architectural design, construction protocol, and graphic signage. The project was advised by OMA partners Rem Koolhaas and Ellen van Loon. I collaborated with three other OMA designers (Khalid Al Nasser, Anna Pribylova, Shuchen Xiang), held and organized numerous meetings with OMA partners, the NAi curatorial team, contractors, and graphic designers.
I managed this project for several weeks while Saskia Simon was traveling.
This project was developed over a period of four months following standard phases: Schematic Design, Design Development, Construction Documents, Construction Administration.
The Netherlands' Architecture Institute (Nederlands Architectuurinstituut — NAi) was rebranded in 2013 to become known as Het Nieuwe Instituut.
