In 2017 Het Nieuwe Instituut (HNI) – Dutch agency for architecture, design and digital culture started a research project leading to the implementation of a digital archive for its architecture collection at the end of 2018. Looking at the changes caused by progressing digitization that over the last decades have affected the profession of the architect the institute shapes its approach to collecting born-digital material in architecture. The implementation of the digital archive with the related policies and workflows will thus stem out from the results of this on-going project. What is possible to ensure better preservation of digital material by the creators, and what is feasible to preserve and make available to the users are crucial questions for HNI. This paper presents the ongoing research and the starting process of its translation into the implementation of a digital archive at HNI.
