    Description:

    In 1251 fire destroyed part of the 11th-century cathedral. Rebuilding started after 1288, but a plan had already been made in 1254. The choir is heavily influenced by French Rayonnant churches. About 1315 the transepts were reached, but not built. Between 1321 and 1381 a single tower 112 m high was erected to the west of the old Romanesque nave. The Gothic transepts and the nave were built during the 15th century and early 16th, but the nave collapsed during the storm of 1674 and was never re…

    Description:

    Visible to the right is an arched office bridge between the old and new buildings (HGB I, not visible and HGB II).

    Nieuwe Kerk

    The town council was a constantly active patron. During 1649-1656 the large, centralized Protestant Nieuwe Kerk was built by the city architect, Pieter Arensz. Noorwits, and Bartholomeus Cornelisz. van Bassen as part of a project to modernize an overcrowded industrial and harbour area. The ground-plan of the freestanding church consists of a rectangle with two apses against each of the long sides and one against each short side, thus creating a “preaching” church with a…

    Description:

    The Binnenhof (Dutch, “inner court”), is a complex of buildings in The Hague. It has been the location of meetings of the Staten-Generaal, the Dutch parliament, since 1446, and has been the centre of Dutch politics for many centuries. The grounds on which the Binnenhof now stands were purchased by Count Floris IV of Holland in 1229, where he built his mansion. The Ridderzaal (“Knights Hall”), the manorial hall of Floris V (reigned 1256-1296), grandson of Floris IV, was bui…

    Description:

    Currently there is sculpture in the pediment; added in 1957 by sculptor Pieter d'Hont.

    The appearance was determined by the severe facade of Bentheim sandstone, built in neoclassical style, with a temple-style front of four Doric columns. The rear section facing Oudkerkhof / Short Minrebroederstraat was added in the same style, 1844-1847. The City Hall recently had a renovation and addition built by Enric Miralles (2000, the year of his death). [Dutch language Wikipedia]

    Description:

    Description:

    Several splendid residences were consequently constructed on the Plein during the 1630s. The only one that survives is the Mauritshuis (1633-1644), a small palace by van Campen and Post, which was built for Johan Maurits, Count of Nassau-Siegen (now the art museum). In 1704, most of the interior of the Mauritshuis was destroyed by fire. The building was restored between 1708 and 1718. In 1820, the Mauritshuis was bought by the Dutch state for the purpose of housing the Royal Cabinet of Painti…

    Description:

    This is a local courthouse (Paleis van Justitie) for Den Haag; not to be confused with the International Court of Justice at the Peace Palace (Vredespaleis). It sits on the Plein, south of the Mauritshuis. It appears to be a 19th century Renaissance Revival building, but it could be older. (It is not the Renaissance era City Hall).

    Description:

    From 1893 Berlage gradually succeeded in eliminating historicist forms from his buildings, coinciding with a general trend in architecture and the visual arts in Europe and the USA. Located on the Damrak, in the center of Amsterdam, the Beurs was designed as a commodity exchange. As a champion of Gesamtkunstwerk he included in this building all the visual arts, and in such a way that the work was executed entirely under his supervision in order to guarantee the concept of “Unity in Varie…
