If, like me, you’re interested in architecture, sooner or later ARCAM is a place you have to visit in Amsterdam. In fact it’s the perfect departure point for exploring the city’s architectural heritage.



Funky architecture



ARCAM (Architecture Centrum Amsterdam) is above all an organisation for architectural information and development in Amsterdam, and since 2006, ARCAM has had its own premises for conducting its work. This building, on the Pins Henrikade, is a funky piece of architecture, as it should be; a glass and aluminium sculpture covered with silver cladding. Not to be missed.



ARCAM contains a work area, an architectural bookshop and an exhibition area. The exhibitions hosted there can run for a few weeks to a few months, and often showcase projects involving city modifications. There are sometimes very interesting city planning projects there.


Exhibitions and lectures



This year began strongly with an exhibition about the red light district, which the city council has been wanting to “clean up” for years. Its exhibitions are also opportunities for debate and lecture evenings, during which architects are invited to present their projects and city planners their surveys. I really like going to these to find out about everything my city has to offer.

Open Tuesday to Saturday, 1 pm to 5 pm.

I spend a lot of time in front of the computer, but I prefer to be followed on a bicycle than on Twitter. I love Amsterdam for...its little streets, riches, treasures and all of the spots where you can get a really good beer. Follow the guide! My little extra: discovering nature
