1. Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen
Why shouldn’t a depot building have multiple functions other than storing art? The first publicly accessible art storage facility – ‘the bowl’ – is as self-evident as it is groundbreaking. After all, the viewing starts outside, searching for your reflection in the mirrored exterior. Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen – with an ultra-sustainable energy system and its own heat and cold storage – has been packed with visitors since its opening in 2021. You can browse art (the building houses up to 151,000 works), visit the green roof or eat at Restaurant Renilde.
