The Canal-house Inside-out

Museum Geelvinck Hinlopen Huis
Keizersgracht 633, Amsterdam
8 June - 7 September 2013
 
Even though the facades of the canal houses look authentic, the reality is often different. And that certainly counts for what's behind the facades. Students of Delft University did a historic survey to the transformation history of the intreiors of some canal-houses, including the Geelvinck house. They where granted access to private archives and the normaly closed archives of the city. 
The research shows considerable contrasts between seemingly identical neighbouring houses. In the exhibition the highlights of the research project will be shown.
