The Colors Duke! The Colors!

This is probably my favorite building I have seen so far. It is located in the Media Park about 30 minutes outside of Amsterdam. The Institute of Sound and Vision holds every type of media produces in the Netherlands including films. The thing I like most about this building is the use of textures and layering. The colored glass panels cover glass in some parts of the building, but in other parts become opaque to the outsiders. When you enter the building, you realize that it goes down several stories to house the archives, almost like descending into a bleak hell from the colored heavens.
