Documentation Centre in Vught

Vught was the largest SS-controlled concentration camp in the Nazi occupied Netherlands. The first steps to create a memorial onthe 86-acre site were taken in the early 1990s. A documentation centre with a museum has now been added that forms an entrance to the partly reconstructed camp. The clear, elongated form of this building is horizontally articulated with a fine strip pattern ofhand-made terracotta slips and slightly recessed, white-rendered bricks. The entrance is marked by a powerful canopy in sandblasted concrete. Internally, the spaces are directly linked with each other without a corridor. Based on an idea by Adolf Loos, their heights vary, according to function.
