Holland and architecture seem to be inseparable. In the early days, Dutch architects already stood their ground and made great name in the field. Nowadays, this reputation stands on a solid foundation of a centuries-long tradition of building with vision.
As one of Europe's most densely populated countries, the Dutch excel in new and creative ideas to make the best of the available space. Dutch architects often deliver pioneering work, and architects from abroad add their distinctive mark on the environment in Holland.
A large number of remarkable buildings showcase the versatility and high level of ancient and modern architecture. Holland is jam-packed with a wonderful mix of medieval cathedrals, seventeenth-century canal houses, grand palaces, Amsterdam School gems and UNESCO monuments such as the Rietveld Schröder House. All this and more in an area only slightly larger than greater New York City.
