Van Gendthallen

The Van Gendthallen are prime examples of Amsterdam's industrial heritage. Situated on the Oostenburgereiland, the five industrial halls were abandoned in the mid 1990s. Almost twenty years later, it is still unclear what the new function of these buildings should be. Mediamatic is contemplating moving to the Van Gendthallen. Part of this decision making process consists of organizing a number of experimental projects in the beautiful buildings.
