The Mediamatic Biotoop is situated next to the Oosterdok. One of the buildings that we use for our art program is the Canal Lock Gate Warehouse that played an important roll in the historic harbour maintenance of Amsterdam.

During Open Monumentendag we open up the space and invite everyone to take look, and enjoy our free tours!

The Sluisdeurenloods or 'Canal Lock Gate Warehouse' was originally built at the end of the 19th century, before being dismantled, moved, and reconstructed at Dijkspark in 1957. The building is now used for the Mediamatic public lectures, exhibitions, and as an event space.
