In 1926, after eleven years of building, the monumental building of KIT | Meetings & Events was completed. It is situated at Oosterpark and designed in neo-renaissance style by father and son Johannes Jacobus and Marie Adrianus van Nieukerken, upon instruction from the Colonial Institute that was founded in 1910 by private individuals and authorities. This is one of the first collaborations between private individuals and the public sector. From here, research was conducted in the area of trade, anthropology and health care in the former Dutch colonies.The entire building was richly decorates with symbolic elements that refer to the various cultures of the world and the colonial history of the Netherlands. More than ten artists worked endlessly on sculptures, woodcarving and wrought iron to portray the trade, industry, foreign affairs, founders of the institute and the work done by it. The Marble Hall is the centre piece; the reception hall with its amazing twelve types of marble.
