From the ground up: new World Soil Museum on Wageningen campus takes shape

The new building of the World Soil Museum on the Wageningen University Campus is rapidly taking shape.Construction of housing for the museum, designed to symbolise a shovel of earth above the ground, advances according to plan. While the new museum is being built up, the old building of the museum, near the city-centre in Wageningen, was demolished.  A heap of concrete rubbish remains on the former venue of ISRIC World Soil Information. The World Soil Museum, currently accessible in a temporary exposition room in the adjacent GAIA building on the campus, is expected to open the new building around May-June this year.
