H.P. Berlage (1856-1934), one of the most famous Dutch architects, built the Amsterdam Stock Exchange (nowadays called Beurs van Berlage) at the Damrak, near Centraal Station over a five-year period (1898-1903). Berlage's intention was to produce a socialist building, in which all kinds of craftsmanship would come together to support the rise of the proletarian movements at the end of the 1800s in an architectural form. He is considered a forerunner of the Dutch architectural style, known as The Amsterdam School. The building isn't used as a Stock Exchange anymore; instead, all kinds of different exhibitions and concerts take place there.
