Master architect and ardent socialist HP Berlage (1856–1934) built Amsterdam's financial exchange in 1903. He filled the temple of capitalism with decorations that venerate labour – look inside the café to see tile murals of the well-muscled proletariat of the past, present and future. Within two decades trading had outgrown the building and moved elsewhere. The building now hosts conferences and art exhibitions.
