The Rijksmuseum Schiphol is the highlight of Holland Boulevard, a cultural zone designed by NEXT architects in which passengers at Schiphol Airport can explore Dutch culture and history. The pavilion forms a modern, innovative framework for the masterpieces which the Rijksmuseum is exhibiting at the airport. One of the special things about this museum is that it never closes. This concept of accessibility is also reflected in the pavilion?s unique structure and materials. The museum is built in an innovative way, using strips of glass of 10 cm wide that are stuck together to form a solid glass wall. The resulting semi-transparent walls filter the light, creating a gradual transition from the hustle and bustle of Schiphol to the peaceful exhibition space. The museum comprises two intersecting U-shapes, giving rise to two spaces and a natural route. The museum shop adds a third U-shape to the ensemble. The shop is completely transparent and a valuable addition to the museum.
