Aquisition, 2019
An archive in situ, photographed for an article about the acquisition process. Het Nieuwe Instituut collects archives related to Dutch architecture and urban planning from 1850 to the present day. The general focus for acquisitions is on the cultural and creative dimensions of architecture and urban planning. The collection includes not only drawings and models for completed designs but also other materials, such as study materials, sketch designs, correspondence and office administration, that contain information about the design process and the context within which the design was created.
