Beurs van Berlage is “an important monument of the modern Dutch architecture. It was built between 1898 and 1903 by the prominent Dutch architect of the 20th century Hendrik Petrus Berlage (1856-1934). Berlage costructed the Beurs on the newly created piece of land obtained by covering the city oldest harbour basin located in the very center of Amsterdam.

The architectural importance of the Berlage Beurs lays in its original volume and the new aesthetics it proposed at the time. Here is the sober brick building, which does not try to imitate Ghothic or renaissance as all important city buildings in Amsterdam erected at the end of the 19th century (just to name Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum, Central Station, Stadsschouwburg), but establishes its own, new style.”

Hendrik Petrus Berlage (1856 – 1934) was a prominent Dutch architect.
Berlage was born in Amsterdam. He studied architecture at the Zurich Institute of Technology (1875-78) after which he travelled for 3 years through Europe. In the 1880s he formed a partnership in the Netherlands with Theodore Sanders which produced a mixture of practical and utopian projects.

A published author, Berlage held memberships in various architectural societies including CIAM I.
