Alice Roegholt is the founder and now emeritus director of Het Schip Museum in Amsterdam and a curator of many exhibitions connected to the Amsterdam School movement and its representatives.

The Amsterdam School is one of the most fascinating movements in Dutch architecture. It's one of the most expressive, imaginative and unique styles that originated in the beginning of the XX century. It is recognized for its rich ornamentation including an expressive use of colours and materials. Buildings worth mentioning are: Het Scheepvaarthuis, Het Schip, De Dageraad, Het Sieraad and Piet Kramer's bridges.

Michel de Klerk is an undisputed leader of the Amsterdam School. His career began at Eduard Cuypers' office, where together with Piet Kramer and Jo van der Mey laid the foundation for the Amsterdam School.
