Amsterdam Façade Series

Amsterdam Facades 02

There are 12 different façades (gables) that span a period of at least 4 centuries. From the wooden façades (1530) to the stepped and spout gables (1600-1670), the neck gable (1640-1780), the bell gable (1660-1790) up to the list gables of the 19th century.

The Idea about this project is to create a background for a gaming table or miniature display and show the development of facades through the ages.
For ideas and inspiration I visited the on-line archives of the city of Amsterdam. Click the following link for thousands of drawings that span a period of at least four centuries.

The “Sint Jozef” page has a lot of pictures of the cutting process.
