NAi / The New Institute
In 2010-2011 the New Institute (then called the Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAi)) in Rotterdam is extensively renovated and entirely refurbished. Right in the center of the building one will find an education deck measuring 300 m2. The NAi invited five studios to pitch their designs, and XPEX won this pitch with our plan to develop a modern educational concept first and subsequently give form to the concept in a way that will inspire and stimulate visitors to started learning by themselves. The education deck is a self-contained world within the NAI without losing its relationship to the surrounding building. The education deck opened in July 2011.
