AMSTERDAM - JUNE 2010
I must confess that I'm an Amsterdam fan; anyway...
"NEW OFFICES - By the IJ, the body of water that separates Amsterdam from Amsterdam-Noord"
"THE IJ FACTOR and the restaurant at the ferry pier..."
Probably one of the first songs I knew by heart in French language was «Amsterdam» by Jacques Brel, just before knowing almost all other of his great hits. It remained one of the most impressive memories and every time I get to Amsterdam it comes back to mind...
"PASSENGER'S TERMINAL & MÖVENPICK HOTEL"
"TERMINAL & MUSIK GEBOUW"
"NEMO - The largest science centre in the Netherlands, in a building by Renzo Piano"
"NEMO & ARCAM"
"ARCAM - The Amsterdam Centre for Architecture. Located in a very futuristic-looking building on the IJ waterfront, it promotes contemporary Dutch architectural design"
"WORKS - Everything seems to be under construction or renovation: The Central Station, the buildings by the IJ, the Maritime Museum, the Concertgebouw, the Stedelijk Museum, the Rijksmuseum, the Dam Square and the Royal Palace..."
