Het Schip, overview, ©Marcel Westhoff

Book: Workers' Palace The Ship

The Ship in Amsterdam marks an international high point in art, architecture and social housing. It was designed by the Dutch architect Michel de Klerk in the expressionist Amsterdam School style of architecture.With its wavy patterns in colourful brick, sculptural forms and wealth of detailing, The Ship is a real eye-catcher that continues to attract visitors from around the world. In this richly illustrated book, Museum Het Schip – housed within The Ship – shows why The Ship is known as a workers’ palace.

The book is available in several bookshops, in the museumshop and our webshop. If you want to order from outside The Netherlands please contact us by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
