July 23: Amsterdam – Beurs 3
So much Beurs, so little time.
More elegant arcuation at the edge of the central Doorgang (passageway).
The Effectenbeurs, the final large chamber of the Beurs, looking spooky.
Windows upon windows.
A chiaroscuro area.
A peek through to the glazed arched roof of the Doorgang.
An elegant, ghostly model of the Beurs.
Still more Catalan vaults. I like the painting on the main I-beam.
Rooms upon rooms.
This hut of light is presumably a recent addition.
Note the pinned connections at the bases of the steel arches.
The entire arc of the Doorgang roof.
This letterbox is rad.
A marginally less elegant skylight configuration than the others.
The western exits of the Beurs had these reproductions of Rembrandt paintings in their arches to advertise the exhibition on Rembrandt currently happening, causing some odd light diffusion effects when viewed from inside.
From the floor of the Goederenbeurs, many snippets of sky shone through the roof shades.
The Rembrandt exhibition was quite dramatically lit.
At the front end of the Goederenbeurs is this polychromatic vestibule.
An attempt to encompass the entire volume of the Goederenbeurs in one shot. I bet the flags are there at least partly to dampen reverberation.
