This year the Amsterdam museum of modern art Stedelijk Museum, the Architecture Centre Amsterdam (Arcam) and museum Het Schip, celebrate the 100th birthday of “The Amsterdam School architecture style” with a major exhibits exploring both the architecture and the furniture design of this innovative movement.
This Dutch version of modern art might not be as famous as its international sister styles from the same era like Art Nouveau and Jugendstil, its beauty is certainly so.
In the last decade this Amsterdam architecture and art style has seen a revival in its appreciation, and by wandering through the city, we can still clearly see touches in the intricate brickwork that’s really left its mark on the city.
If you don’t have time to visit the exhibition, which gives a real sense of how life in Amsterdam looked in the early part of the 20th century, here is a peek of what you can still see wandering around the city:
