About Sound and Vision
The building with its brilliantly coloured facade is designed by two Dutch architects, Willem-Jan Neutelings and Michiel Riedijk. It serves as the centre of the Dutch audiovisual heritage. The plans were made in 1998, and in 1999 five firms were invited to make a design. In 2004 the construction started, to be finished in 2006. The colourful glass panes were designed by Jaap Drupsteen.

The building itself houses the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision; it looks after, and provides access to 70% of the Dutch audio-visual heritage. In total, around 800,000 hours of television, radio, music and film; making Sound and Vision one of the largest audiovisual archives in Europe.

Sound and Vision is the business archive of the national broadcasting corporations, a cultural heritage institute (providing access to students and the general public) and also a museum for its visitors. The digital television production workflow and massive digitization efforts break grounds for new services.

Sound and Vision is an experienced partner in European funded research projects. Currently, these include: P2P-Fusion, MultiMatch, PrestoSpace, VIDI-Video, LiWA Living Web Archives (Research Project), Communia and Video Active (European Research Project)

This museum is dedicated to the history of Dutch radio and television
