contributed by MI_MOA

The main building of the Van Gogh Museum is located at the Paulus Potterstraat, and was the first building of the museum, where both the collection was house and the varying expositions took place. Now this part is only used for the presentation of the permanent collection. The building was designed in 1963-64 by Dutch architect and furniture designer Gerrit Rietveld. After he died, his companions completed the building. Rietveld was an important member of De Stijl, a group of progressive artiest and architects who where active during the 1920s and published their own magazine. From his modernist vision, Rietveld emphasized in his designs on the geometric shapes with light and open spaces. The most striking part of this museum are the stairs in the central hall. The daylight enters the hall from above, through the large hall and pours into the adjacent galleries.
