ARCAM | architectuurcentrum amsterdam
Local Architecture Centre ARCAM is located in the heart of the city, on Prins Hendrikkade. It consists of a compact, sculptural structure whose three storeys are interconnected by voids. ARCAM’s office is situated on the top storey. At the level of Prins Hendrikkade are the exhibition space and the information point. The lowermost storey, on the water, is used for small-scale discussions, large meetings and for receiving school groups. The elevation on the waterside is entirely of glass. The building is clad with coated aluminium, folded over the roof, right down to the ground. An unusual feature is the sculptural form of the entrance on this side. The bottom floor, the “Lage Kade”, of the ARCAM building can be rented for commercial and cultural events. The space is available during the day and in the evening for meetings, book and product presentations, workshops, lectures and receptions. Moreover, the entire building can be used for photographic reports and filming.
