Amsterdam's Stedelijk 'Bath Tub" Addition Panned...

Jump to last reply

in this NYTimes article:

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/24/arts/design/amsterdams-new-stedelijk-museum.html?_r=0

The author is pretty hard on Amsterdam officials and Museum Plein, on which it sits - especially excoriating the supermarket built next to it - a bogus charge IMO since the supermarket is underground - he just laments its above ground entrance - I think Amsterdam is right in making such things as supermarkets available to its residents and this was one of the few areas a large new one could be built in the city centre.

I think the writer suffers from a serious case of snob nose-in-the-air attitude I all too often find in art critics - missing the whole picture to give his witty take on things and how they should have been.

I also applaud Amsterdam officials for OKing such a monstrous to some addition to a world-famous museum.

Unlike Venice for example Amsterdam in recent years has shown it is a real city and modern protrusions that such boorish art critics may lampoon signify just that..

Vive Amsterdam!

Anyone have an opinion on the new Modern Art Museum (Stedelijk) addition?
