The facades of this exhibition pavilion include areas of glazed brick in primary colours. Daylight floods in through double-height facade glazing and roof lights underlaid with a grid of metal strips. An upper gallery partially encircles this central skylight. Rietveld's unerring placement of wall surfaces and columns within the basic rectangular space gives a disarming spatial complexity within an immediately surveyable whole.
