Water movements forever petrified.


This fence on an amsterdam school building from around 1920 is in the so called amsterdam school style. A kind of late dutch art nouveau and recognizable on the flowing and movements in the details that keep us thinking on waves and movements in water. Often also to find in brickwork in the facade.

Another example of the wave movement in the amsterdam school style.
One for friday fences here.

  1. Excellent photos S.C. The wave effect is certainly there and is a very remarkable piece of brick work.

  2. For sure it looks like a petrified wave, very different from any architecture I have seen here in my small town.

  10. I like the repeating patterns of brickwork in the second shot. I would think this would be tricky to build!
