Amsterdam Architecture, a Guide is the ideal handbook for every visitor who wants to get to know Amsterdam's unique architecture better. This guide covers the architectonic history of the capital city of The Netherlands from the Middle Ages down through today, and includes over 400 buildings from the past and present, which are to be found both in the old city centre and in the outer neighbourhoods. This fifth edition includes the most recent construction projects in the still-growing city. 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. Amsterdam Architecture includes a concise introduction to the history of the city's development, about 400 full-colour illustrations, maps, useful addresses, a comprehensive index and a bibliography for readers interested in further study.
