Oost - Watergraafsmeer

Rapid urban development in the early 20th century lead to a robust infrastructural network and plenty of public works projects for architects in this area. This resulted in the construction of two remarkable train stations, a number of bath houses and two additional bridges over the Amstel River. One of these bridges, the Berlagebrug Bridge, was even designed to function as a full-fledged city gate.
