Cracks, creases and moulds threaten the legacies of leading Dutch architects. Het Nieuwe Instituut's archive comprises a hybrid of approximately 1.4 million design drawings, consisting of a variety of materials and techniques such as tracing paper, plastic films, and photographic reproduction techniques. The majority are drawings on tracing paper, a material that tears easily and is extremely sensitive to moisture, so in the coming years a large part of this collection will be restored and preserved.
