Amsterdam! Mecca of Architecture.
We are a group of French students working on a one year project. We are studying diverse types of habitation for different sections of the community in times of crisis arising from a natural catastrophe such as a tsunami, earthquake, volcanic eruption or hurricane.
We found the architecture of Amsterdam very interesting. To see traditional houses standing side by side with futuristic container homes meeting the needs of a cosmopolitan population was most enlightening.
Our tour was full of detailed information provided by our excellent guide Elly Vermeiden. She was attentive and entertaining for all age groups and, together with our teachers, we hope to return to study with Elly again in the future.
