Cycle route Architecture in Amsterdam
The Golden Age thus left its mark in the city's architecture. For example, at the Scheepvaartmuseum, designed by Stalpaert in 1656, as a warehouse for the Admiralty. Van der Pol of DOK Architects added glass and metal during the renovation at the beginning of this century to underline the building's sturdy character.
During this cycle route, from Hoofddorp to Amsterdam, we will lead you past architectural highlights. How about Eye, the film museum designed by Viennese Delugan Meissl Associated Architects? Or the extraordinary NEMO building, designed by Alberts and Van Huut. Of course, the Central Station by Cuypers and Van Gendt is not to be missed. And what is an architecture route in Amsterdam without the Amsterdam School? For that, the cycle route goes to Museum Het Schip, designed by De Klerk.
Of a completely different order are the neo-Gothic-style pumping stations by architect J.A. Beijerinck that you pass along the way. Pumping stations built later are functional and dull, but in the nineteenth century architecture was still considered very important. Modern architects still call it "super cool".
