Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen (Extension 2003)
This new wing fits in well with the existing building in its use of brick, but is more open to the street. Split into three by two walk-ways, the exhibition space consists of large, flexible areas with neutral white walls. Steel shed roofs provide lighting on the upper floor. The offices are housed in a strip of low-rise. Bodon's extension is for the greater part hidden by the 2003 extension by Robbrecht and Daem.
