The South Bank of the 1J inlet in Amsterdam has undergone a spectacular transformation in a short period of time. Along Amsterdam's Waterfront is the first publication to provide a survey of the architecture in the former dockland area, where a mixture of housing, business premises and recreational facilities has now been created. Nine architectural routes with photographs and explanatory texts guide you past some 200 projects - old, new, and planned - varying from apartment complexes and office premises to public spaces, bridges, monuments and works of art. Attention is also devoted to a variety of themes such as housing typologies, infrastructure, the harbour, the IJ dikes, and recreation.
