Amsterdam Architecture is the ideal guide for every visitor who wants to get to know Amsterdam’s unique architecture better. This handbook covers the architectonic history of the capital city of The Netherlands from the Middle Ages down through today, and includes over 450 buildings from the past and present, which are to be found both in the old city centre and in the outer neighbourhoods. This sixth edition includes the most recent construction projects. Of course, it could not be without a special chapter on the Eastern Harbour area, one of the most heavily-visited architectonic highlights of The Netherlands. It also includes the new residential neighbourhood of IJburg.
Amsterdam Architecture includes a concise introduction to the history of the city’s development, about 450 full-colour illustrations, maps, useful addresses, a comprehensive index and a bibliography.
