In September 2012, grand celebrations marked the reopening of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam after a renovation that took eight years. The striking new white addition designed by Benthem Crouwel Architekten – popularly known as ‘the bathtub’ – is the subject of this richly illustrated publication.
In Stedelijk Architecture, which features photos by internationally renowned photographer Iwan Baan as well as floor plans, cross sections and details of the new structure, architecture critic Hans Ibelings relates the museum’s history from the 1895 inauguration of the old building, designed by architect Adriaan Weissman, to the completion of the controversial extension. Architect Mels Crouwel discusses the building in an interview.
