Architecture Institute; Premsela, the Netherlands Institute for Design and Fashion; and Virtueel Platform, the e-culture knowledge institute. The institute
manages and provides access to cultural heritage, including the State Archive for Architecture, encourages research, promotes national and international
exhibitions and a programme of lectures and debates, develops educational packages, and has a transdisciplinary platform function.
The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision
