The red veins through the Hijmans van den Berghbuilding

This building dates from 2005. Architect is Erick van Egeraat (EEA, Erick van Egeraat associated architects).

The Hijmans van den Bergh building has won the 2007 Rietveldprize for architecture. The building is named after a famous Dutch internist and it is used for medical education. The architect was inspired by this and one can clearly see the blood veins going through the building (the red stairs), the bones in the restaurant (the white pillars) and the lungs (the glass centre).
