contributed by boeboe

The NAI has one of the world's most important collections of archives of architecture, interiors, landscape architecture and urban planning. The permanent exhibition Living in the Lowlands reveals the collection's wealth of drawings, models and photographs. The highlights of this national treasure paint a picture of domestic life in the Netherlands over the last 150 years. Ordinary Dutch architecture whose quality is unmatched anywhere in the world. The Belgian office 51N4E Space Producers, recent winners of the Rotterdam Maaskant Prize for Young Architects, designed the exhibition. Their solution adds a new dimension to Jo Coenen's building. They transformed four of the NAI's exhibition galleries into a single new space. The void between the first and second floors will been closed off to create a continuous display wall. 51N4E's design creates a new visual entity for the display of material from the collection, often without mats or frames.
