architecture

Amsterdam architecture varies wildly but is always distinctive. The city’s most notable icons are its canal-side properties, evolving since the 17th century. But this creative city showcases some impressive modern architecture, too, from the glass towers of the Zuidas to Science Center NEMO and the transformation of the Overhoeks Tower by the River IJ.
