This is what I hate about architectural terminology. It's not based so much on the meaning of the word as much as the certain institutions or locations. If you were to take those shapes into another location, for instance the US, it would become Art Deco. What one would consider expressionistic here would not be considered expressionistic in Europe.

I like this very much. It is rather similar to New York Art Deco - which I love - but also different and very unique.

Expressionism was very close to art déco. A little bit more art and less déco. One could also say Art Déco was a more popular version of Expressionism.
This is a bit strange for my taste, but it is fascinating.

Well, perhaps. But art deco structures and design did not use brick, to my knowledge.

The brick gives the buildings a sense of solidity and warmth that is quite different from the cool, sleek, silver, gold, white and grey of art deco.

Art Déco is a term out of the sixties. Before they didn't have a word for the style we know today as Art Déco. In the twenties and thirties they didn't built expressionistic or Art Déco or Bauhaus. They used forms out of their time. In Miami Beach one can see Art Déco Hotels with Bauhaus windows. That those hotels are Art Déco is a classification of later generations. If there are different styles in one era, such a classification can never be perfect.

Not all buildings, which have a brick facade are out of brick expressionism. There is also a brick gothic known in Northern Germany. It's gothic built with bricks. Most of Amsterdam is built with brick. But only few buildings are expressionism.

Actually Einsteinturm is build of brick...

Really interesting about its origin to material access - makes perfect sense really.

Just on a side tangent - don't you think the Christi Auferstehung Church by Gottfried Boehm looks influenced by Mendelsohn's Einsteinturm blended with brick?

Rathaus, Wilhelmshaven

Built in 1927-1929 and designed by Johann Friedrich Höger, who among other buildings also designed Chilehaus in Hamburg and Anzeiger-Hochhaus in Hannover, both earlier posted in this thread.

Personally I love his use of dark bricks combined with white window frames.

I simply searched for "Amsterdam School" on skyscrapercity because that is a style with expressionist brickwork. And I quoted it.

Foto's uit m'n oude camera, maar hier wel de moeite waard.

1. We beginnen klein aan de Prinsengracht...


2. ...in Den Haag, met aan de achterzijde kleine laddervensters.


3. De meest 'Amsterdamse' Bijenkorf van NL.


4. De parabool van de oude V&D...


5. ...met erboven 'gevelgolven'.


6. Aan de Hofvijver een niet als te uitbundig pand...


7. ...van dichtbij vallen de details wel op...


8. ...sober, maar herkenbaar Amsterdamse School.


9. Naast Het Schip deels tegels als gevelbekleding, maar ook -rechts- een parabool.


10. Klein, maar fijn! Bovendien met veel laddervensters.


11. Een beetje rommelig, maar niet minder bijzonder.


12. Een evenwichtig gebouw. En nog steeds een bieb!

Het nadeel in Nederland is dat ze vaak toch een beetje zijn weggestopt. Haal in dit voorbeeld de achterliggende boom weg, maak de stenen wat vaker schoon en koester dit soort architectuur wat meer. Het Amrath Hotel is ook schittend, al doet de buitenkant 's nachts wel denken aan een goedkope horrorfilm qua setting met al dat metaalwerk. Maar dat even terzijde, toch een schitterend stukje Nederlandse historie.

(De onderstaande foto's zijn van Internet geplukt)













Wat het ook is, precies, het blijft een prachtig gebouw.

Ongerelateerd aan het bovenstaande, maar wel heel on-topic, en ook gepost in de villawijken-topic:

http://www.jantromp.nl/docs/tekstas.htm

De villawijk in Amsterdamse School-stijl in Bergen.



Verder blijven mijn favorieten in deze stijl toch nog het Scheepvaarthuis, het Schip, en het Olympisch Stadion. Tuindorp Nieuwendam mag er ook wezen, en dan met name het Purmerplein. En die huizen langs (geloof ik) de Amstelkade of daartegenover.

And again a quote from the Amsterdam School forum.

Natuurlijk is er in België wel veel art deco, ook in baksteen. Een bekend gebouw is de Nationale Basiliek van het Heilig Hart in Brussel (Koekelberg).



In hoeverre is dit gebouw te vergelijken met de Amsterdamse School?

Scheepsvaarthuis Amsterdam. It was a office for a shipping company. Now it is a exclusive hotel.

Here are some various examples I found in the Wikimedia Commons under `amsterdamse school´. You have to know that the style really wasn´t bounded to Amsterdam. But it started there and the city grew extremely fast. The name is also not bounded to architecture. Actually ´expressionism´and ´Amsterdamse School´ are usually used interchangeable in the Netherlands. But I stick to brickwork because of the threadname.
The style also had a much more sober pendant, but for the sake of entertainment I stick to the most extreme examples.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index...erdamse+school

Ok then, a random selection:


At last an example of an interior detail. The architects had a tendency to design every little detail of the building (sometimes even furniture). So it is really these crafted details that give the buildings it character.
