Sharing expertise

Het Nieuwe Instituut recognises the desirability for society that in addition to benefiting the national collection, the specialised expertise obtained in this restoration and digitisation project should also be shared with the wider world in the form of publications and symposia. Het Nieuwe Instituut plans to take this opportunity to make itself available as a centre of expertise for other institutions with similar collections.

Het Nieuwe Instituut and the State Archive

Het Nieuwe Instituut administers around eighteen kilometres of archive material comprising around seven hundred archives and collections of Dutch architects, urban planners, professional organisations and courses encompassing some four million documents. It is one of the biggest architectural collections in the world, providing an insight into around 130 years of change and developing ideas in Dutch architecture and urban planning. Het Nieuwe Instituut is one of the leading institutes in the world of architecture, with a collection of exceptional cultural-historical, educational and artistic value.
