The MORE building

The MORE building in Gorssel was designed by the celebrated Dutch architect Hans van Heeswijk, who was also responsible for the reconstruction of the Van Gogh Museum and the Hermitage in Amsterdam, the Mauritshuis in the Hague. In 2017 MORE will open a second location in Castle Ruurlo. Both buildings are located in the east of the Netherlands.
