The Amsterdam School Style of Architecture

The Amsterdam School of Architecture arose during the early 1900s and is characterized by elaborate masonry and wrought iron elements with decorative windows, towers, and ornamental spires. Born from the need for better housing for Amsterdam’s working class, the Amsterdam School was the chosen style for public housing projects and local institutions in the 1920s and 1930s.
