If you are interested in modern architecture, and you are on a holiday in Amsterdam, you should visit the ARCAM, the centre of architecture. The building itself is a great peace of architecture designed by Dutch architect René van Zuuk in 2003. It is situated between NEMO and the shipping museum.

The building has three floors. The first one is a multifunctional room where meetings and discussion forums take place. The second storey where you enter the museum is an exhibition space where several kinds of architecture projects are shown. In the top level there are placed office premises.
The glass front stretches across two levels and you have wonderful views over the water. I especially liked the view on a houseboat looking like a raft.

ARCAM is a donation which exists since 1986 and concentrates on architectural activities in and round Amsterdam and wants to reach a broad number of people. There are held lots of exhibitions and events dealing with actual themes and progress concerning Architecture. If you need some information about interesting architecture in Amsterdam go to the information point where you can find lots of prospects, booklets and tips for routes to worth seeing buildings and places of the city.
