Soar Through MVRDV's Competition-Winning Zaanstad Cultural Center Design

MVRDV has released new renderings and a flythrough of their competition-winning design for a new cultural center in the city of Zaanstad in the Netherlands. Borrowing architectural motifs from the historic Zaan House, the design flips the traditional form inside out to create a new living room for the city. Inside, the building will become the new home of a film house, a library, a performing and visual arts centre, a pop music centre, a music school, a centre for design and a local radio station.

MVRDV Wins Competition to Design Zaanstad Cultural Cluster

The Netherlands' City of Zaanstad has crowned MVRDV as winner of a competition to design a new "cultural cluster" in the heart of downtown. Neighboring the city's main train station, city hall and famous Inntel Hotel, the 7,500 square-meter project will be comprised of five cultural institutions stacked into a single cluster whose hollowed core is shaped after the historic Zaan house.
