In this run-up to the exhibition MVRDVHNI The Living Archive of a Studio, team members of Het Nieuwe Instituut will talk to MVRDV’s Sanne van der Burgh and Leo Stuckardt about the concept and design of the exhibition opening autumn 2021 at Het Nieuwe Instituut. This is followed by an oral history on the Lloyd Hotel as a glimpse of the exhibition's content.
The exhibition MVRDVHNI The Living Archive of a Studio is based on the extensive physical and digital archive of architecture firm MVRDV, and it opens at the same time as the Open Depot of Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, a building by MVRDV. With an open set-up, the depot opts for a new approach to managing, opening up and exhibiting. Inspired by the Open Depot, the MVRDVHNI exhibition shows the MVRDV archive as a living entity that inhabits office spaces, rather than a museum.
As a working environment, the office is the place where ideas and projects move fluidly between present, past and future.
Together with MVRDV, new instruments are being developed for the exhibition to unlock, organise and present the predominantly digital archive in alternative ways.
