In Dutch radio and television broadcasting, VPRO has stood out since the Seventies as the most experimental public broadcaster: the station has an identity of its own, not directly linked to a political or philosophical current but deriving from the ideas of individual programmers, each of whom is allowed to work with a great deal of autonomy.



MVRDV: radio and television station in Hilversum, Netherlands In the Nineties the Dutch station experienced repeated crises due to the rapid growth of new commercial and local stations. It therefore decided to leave its old location, divided among thirteen bungalows in Hilversum, and move into the city?s broadcasting centre. The studios of other stations will be built around the VPRO building in years to come.
The new building is constructed on a hilly site, an unusual situation in Holland.

The MVRDV group has come up with a compact but very deep construction distributed over five floors: the aim is to reduce the building?s impact on the surrounding environment to a minimum.
The building?s compact construction offers a number of advantages; the deepest offices make the most of the common areas and permit considerable energy savings.
