This week the final section was added to the steel framework for the Van Gogh Museum’s new Entrance Building.   This museum extension will be a stunning example of glass in construction, enhancing the profile of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam’s Museum Square.

The open, transparent glass Entrance Building will make use of state-of-the-art glass structures, developed and constructed by Octatube according to the latest technologies. It incorporates 650 square metres of cold-bent glazing, 12-metre-long glass roof beams, and 9.4-metre-long glass fins in the facade. The steel tube framework now in place is designed to support the glass roof and the facade. Because of the complex geometry and dozens of connection points, the steel structure has been engineered in 3D and pre-assembled in the factory to check all dimensions. The installation of the glass panels will begin in September.
