dc.descriptionThree quarter view of the "cube" from north traffic circle, intersection of Sumatralaan and Media Parkboulevard; The building was conceived as a perfect cube, half of which is buried beneath the ground (five levels above ground, 5 levels below). A cultural focus for the city of Hilversum, it houses broadcasting archives, offices and a museum. The exterior is a modern take on stained glass, conceived in collaboration with artist Jaap Drupsteen. Each relief panel of the cast glass skin is imprinted with famous images from Dutch Television. Each image of the relief panel is only discernible from a certain angle, creating a merged and colorful effect. 70% of the Dutch audiovisual heritage is stored in the building, making it one of the largest audiovisual archives in Europe. It is also the business archive of the national broadcasting corporations. Source: Neutelings Riedijk Architecten [firm website]; http://www.neutelings-riedijk.com (accessed 7/31/2014)en_US
