Shut the Window Diaries: A Journey Through Amsterdam Part 2

Today we will continue our remaining journey through Amsterdam and learn more about the historic places and their beautiful “Windows”. Be sure to read up on the first part of A journey Through Amsterdam before continuing.

Shut the Window is the final few days before its launch and I hope you have pre-orderd the game on iOS and Mac App Stores.

Right, So let’s begin!

1. Qubic Student Housing

Shut the Window Diaries: A Journey Through Amsterdam Part 2

This beautiful building is a complex containing 715 student dwellings, 72 temporary dwellings and a café-restaurant, built using a prefab system with standard containers. The containers are stacked in two or three layers and are accessed via a central corridor. The fronts have been combined in different ways, giving rise to colourful street facades. Isn’t it just amazing!

2. OZW VU University

Shut the Window Diaries: A Journey Through Amsterdam Part 2

The OZW health care and well-being training institute is a landmark in architecture. The softly shaped brick walls that bring to mind the Amsterdam School are in keeping with the nature of the training programmes. The window spacing emphasizes the main outlines of the exterior and immediately draws attention to the transparency and vitality of the interior. You can recognize the shape of the building on the satellite images. The design is a high-rise with atria flowing diagonally through it, like a waterfall. Just unbelievable.

3. Ripley’s Believe It Or Not.

Shut the Window Diaries: A Journey Through Amsterdam Part 2

Who has not heard or Ripley’s? Famous for bizarre events and items so strange and unusual that we might question the very sanity of it. Located in Amsterdam, The Ripley’s Believe It Or Not is a cabinet of curiosities showcases more than 500 exhibits and artifacts in its five floors. The items, ranging from actual Olympic torches to a very unusual Fabergé egg, are organized in 19 themed galleries. You better believe it!

4. Red Light District

Shut the Window Diaries: A Journey Through Amsterdam Part 2

The famous Red Light District consists of a network of alleys containing approximately three hundred one-room cabins rented by “workers” who offer their services from behind a window or glass door, typically illuminated with red lights. The Red Lighting on the windows is what gives this area its name.

5. Double Houses Residence.

Shut the Window Diaries: A Journey Through Amsterdam Part 2

Houses in Amsterdam are so special because of the combination of skinny profile, grand windows, and architectural quirkiness that you just simply aren’t going to see anywhere else in the world. Amsterdam houses are leaning forward, they tilt to one side, some look like they might fall over and they have to most beautiful windows!

And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed this journey through the beautiful and historic city of Amsterdam. 

Till then don’t forget to Pre-order Shut the Window on iOS and Mac, it comes out on April 5, 2018. Pre-ordering ensures that the app automatically downloads onto your device on April 5.

Shut the Window Diaries: A Journey Through Amsterdam Part 2

Shut the Window Diaries: A Journey Through Amsterdam Part 1

Less than 2 weeks left till the launch of Shut the Window on iOS and Mac App Stores. We are super excited for you to get your hands on this little gem. Shut the Window is a one touch game where you have to close/shut as many windows as you can before the timer runs out. Yes, it is basically a game about shutting windows and yes it is amazing.

In the previous blog, we spoke to you on the inspiration behind the game from Jose Guzar and his project Windows of New York. For us, we wanted to select a place that had a mix of both modern and historic places and architecture. Of course it had to be super cool as well. We immediately thought of Amsterdam!

Shut the Window Diaries: A Journey Through Amsterdam Part 1
Amsterdam was the perfect location for our game.

Ranked in the top 3 cities to live in the world, rich in culture, heritage, history. Amsterdam was the perfect location for our game. So let us take you on a little journey through the windows of Amsterdam which you would be shutting in the game.

1. Anne Frank House.

Shut the Window Diaries 2: A Journey Through Amsterdam Part 1

I am sure most of you have heard about Anne Frank. She is the most discussed Jewish victim of the Holocaust, known for her war diary The Diary of a Young Girl in which she documents her life in hiding from 1942 to 1944, during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II. It is one of the world’s most widely known books and has been the basis for several plays and films.

2. Rembrandt House Museum

The historic structure was home to the legendary Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn. Rembrandt is generally considered one of the greatest visual artists in the history of art and the most important in Dutch art history. Rembrandt purchased the house in 1639 and lived there until he went bankrupt in 1656, when all his belongings went on auction. The auction list enabled the reconstructions of all his belongings which are also on display in the house today.

3. Moco Museum

Known most commonly as Banksy and Roy Lichestein Museum, this beautiful structure primarily houses these legendary artists work.

Banksy is a British artist who mostly creates streetart. Banksy started as a graffiti artist, his works are often humorous and political. Many of his street works are in the moco museum.

Similarly

Roy Lichtenstein is one of the greatest contemporary art interpreters and a master of Pop Art. The influence of Roy Lichtenstein’s art is still evident in many forms of artistic expression: from painting to advertising, from photography to design and fashion.

4. Java Island Residences

Java-eiland (literally, “Java Island”) is a neighbourhood of Amsterdam, Netherlands. This place is like an oasis of peace, nature and modern architecture (perfectly combined). On Java Eiland, five architecture firms each designed an apartment building. These houses are distributed along the south and north quay according to a seemingly random pattern. In the four smaller side canals, younger architects got the chance to design smaller canal houses.

5. Pakhuis

Pakhuis de Zwijger (De Zwijger warehouse) was built during the heyday of Amsterdam’s Eastern Docklands area and was used as a warehouse for refrigerated goods. Today it houses a café, multiple halls and meeting rooms, radio and television studios, and multimedia workshops. There is no place in Amsterdam like Pakhuis – an independent and cultural warehouse that is all about sparking inspiring discussions, connections, creativity, bottom up initiatives and innovation. 

I hope you have enjoyed these places and their illustrations so far. We will continue with the next set of windows in the next blog. Please stay tuned!

Till then don’t forget to Pre-order Shut the Window on iOS and Mac, it comes out on April 5, 2018. Pre-ordering ensures that the app automatically downloads onto your device on April 5.
