District of the Dutch capital in the style of the Amsterdam School
Week number 76-05
Newsreels in which Dutch subjects of a certain week are presented.
The Amsterdam School style originated in the 1920's when some young architects started to resist the chaotic public housing buildings from the 19th century. The architect Wijdeveld, who is still alive, tells (off screen) about the designs of those days. SHOTS: several of the Amsterdam School buildings; Wijdeveld glances through a photo book on architecture; int. of the council chamber of the city hall and theatre Tuschinski; ext. Scheepvaarthuis (Shipping House) at the Prins Hendrikkade.
