UNStudio has recently opened a part of its model archive — located on the KNSM island in Amsterdam — to the public.
Originally intended to act as an inspiration space — where UNStudio’s architects and designers could learn about the history and design processes at the practice — the UNStudio model archive has now been made accessible to the public by way of a twice-yearly series of small changing exhibitions.
The UNStudio archive can be visited with architour.
The first exhibition, entitled ‘Hidden Treasures’, celebrates the 30-year history of UNStudio and highlights a selection of models produced by the studio over the years.
The exhibition includes over 50 models, ranging from handcrafted concept, paper and sketch models, through to process models and form studies that demonstrate the design development of a wide selection of projects, and on to the very earliest 3D printed scale models.
architour arranges private group visits to the exhibition, accompanied by an architect from our team.
