File documents an unsuccessful entry by the Foreign Office Architects for a competition to design the new Filmmuseum, Amsterdam, Netherlands. The Foreign Office Architects were one of five firms invited to participate in the competition, along with Wiel Arets architect & associates, Delugan Meissl Associated architects, NL architects, and John Körmeling. The proposed building site consisted of 20 hectares on the north bank of the IJ River, on a site known as the Shell Terrain. Delugan Meissl Associated architects won the competition, and their design now houses the EYE Film Institute, which opened in 2012. Material in this file was produced in 2005.
