G.B. Salm and A. Salm GBzn, architects in nineteenth century Amsterdam. Father and son Salm are responsible for an amazing amount and an amazing variety of buildings in Nineteenth Century Amsterdam. They changed the architectural face of Amsterdam significantly. Despite their significance only very little is known regarding their oeuvre, their ideas on style , their use of material, their network and their clients. Research is done on their position in the Dutch nineteenth century architectural debate.
With the use of the personal archive of G.B. Salm en A. Salm GBzn (present at the city archive of Amsterdam) and other archives (eg. The New Institute at Rotterdam) both architects will be researched in relation to the architectural world of the nineteenth century. Only part of the archive is disclosed and researched. Because of their central position in the main architectural societies and architect networks of their day, father and son Salm should be closer researched.
