Amsterdam is the capital city of the Netherlands and one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Amsterdam’s name derives from Amstelredamme, indicative of the city’s origin around a dam in the river Amstel. Its origins lie in the 12th century.
Modern architecture in Amsterdam and generally in the Netherlands (in Rotterdam and in Delft mostly) after 1990 is one of the most interesting in the world.
In 2018 and 2019 we have been to Amsterdam to partner with the World Architecture Festival.
Interesting realizations include Silodam, the New Islands (Borneo, Java, Sporenburg, KNSM), IJburg. Many Dutch architects who recognized abroad have their works here, including star architect Rem Koolhaas, Wiel Arets, Benthem & Crouwel, MVRDV, Ben van Berkel, Ton Alberts de Architekten Cie, Hans van Heeswijk Architects, West 8, to quote a few. Foreign architects include Renzo Piano, Delugan Meissl Associated Architects, Steven Holl, Sven-Ingvar Andersson, Antonio Cruz and Antonio Ortiz, 3XN and many others.
