The Study Centre has been transformed into the Research Centre, a space where research, encounters, inspiration, collaboration and the exchange of knowledge are central. Hosting around 3000 (inter)national researchers per year, above all it’s a place where new knowledge is created. The Research Centre connects researchers with Het Nieuwe Instituut and research results with the National Collection.

While the original design was primarily aimed at facilitating academic research on the National Collection for Dutch Architecture and Urban Planning, the new interior enables different types of use. Visitors are welcome to meet, work and learn more about the library, the collection, and the research of others. With the transformation, the former Study Centre, which was primarily meant for concentrated study, gains a new atmosphere. The new Research Centre has several zones, including spaces for non-academic forms of research and knowledge sharing.
