The Rotterdam City Council finally voted in with the building of the Collection building. The public depot for Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, designed by MVRDV, expected to open in 2019. The new depot is next to the museum on the gravel area of the Museum park. The whole collection is – that is a world first – open to the public.
In the forest on the roof is a Grand Café with a terrace where the visitor can enjoy the view over the city. On the top floor is also a freely accessible exhibition space with a presentation on collecting, (the emergence of) the collection, the operation of Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen and the architecture.
