Gerrit Rietveld Academy

Benthem Crouwel Architekten has completed expansion of The Rietveld Academy of Art in Amsterdam. The edition includes a 9-story studio building with full transparent northern facade allowing the spaces to be flooded with light. All facades are classed in pressed Czech glass tiles, which form a marvelous texture to the new tower. More at ArchDaily.

Images of the northern facade and more after the jump.
