JUXTAPOSITION ALONG THE CANALS
Among the many historical buildings along the canals of Amsterdam, there are a few less historical, but certainly no less historic buildings. One such example is found on Singel 428, built in 1970 to a design by Abel Cahen and his team. It's a unique example of Brutalism, or more precisely of that very Dutch brand of Brutalism known as Structuralism. And yet, it doesn't seem out of place. Cahen and his team worked hard to translate the rhythm and scale of the traditional canal houses to this modern interpretation. As yet I have not had a chance to photograph the interior, though I hope I will get the chance to do so one day.
