AMS 3.0 Amsterdam interiors in your pocket

AMS 3.0 is an App for the smartphone, which by means of QR codes on the facade  makes the interiors of buildings and the story behind them visible. With the help of interactive 360˚ photography the passer-by gets an image of what's behind the front door, with all conceivable information.

Public Interiors

In 1993 ARCAM published a much talked-about book, entitled "public Interiors", and devoted to interesting (semi)public interiors in the city. In 2013, twenty years after this publication, the city appears to have changed also in this respect. It is therefor tempting to consider now already to give new attention to the phenomenon public interior in 2013. The theme is maybe more than ever important because the city of Amsterdam in writing it's DNA likes to refer to aspects as openness and hospitality.

Excursions Amsterdamse School Interiors

Next to it's regular excursion program Museum het Schip will arrange a number of special excursions in extraordinary Amsterdamse School Interiors that are usually closed for the public.

Adriaan Dortsman, The Ideal Canal

In the fully restored coach house Museum van Loon shows the history of the 17th century building. Although the house currently has an 18th century appearance much is still to be illustrated on the original interiors from the Golden Age. Museum van Loon, February 8 - June 9, 2013.

From slums to Amsterdamse School

In a number of peepshow boxes at the Spaarndammerplantsoen, opposite the museum buildings, Amsterdamse School Museum het Schip will show the development of the ordinary Amsterdam interior, from slums to Amsterdamse School. The show will be open 24/7!

International Student Workshop "Tactual Senses"

International workshop of 400 years canal houses by means of 400 one minute movies about the tactile qualities of living, working and staying on canal houses from an interior architectural perception. Not a standard recording of reality, but for example a special view of a detail, a shadow, a worn staircase, a completely renovated floor, wrongly restored window frame, the real canal green; in short, a visual story that gives a new insight in canal houses of the last 400 years in 400 minutes told.
