Discover Amsterdam by visiting the city’s bridge control buildings.
On show this summer at ARCAM (Amsterdam Centre for Architecture) is the exhibition Sweets, about Amsterdam’s bridge control buildings. Computerization of the bridges’ operating system means that these buildings will soon become redundant. The question is thus: what will their future be? Demolition, decay or reuse?
In the 16th century, wooden buildings in the Dutch capital city were razed and replaced with brick ones. During this period, many buildings were constructed in the architectural style of the Renaissance. Buildings of this period are recognisable by their stepped gable façades, which is the common Dutch Renaissance style. Amsterdam quickly developed its own Renaissance architecture. These buildings were built according to the principles of the architect Hendrick de Keyser. One of the most striking buildings designed by Hendrick de Keyer is the Westerkerk.
