Just north of Westerpark over the train tracks, this remarkable 1921-completed housing project is a flagship of the Amsterdam School of architecture. Designed by Michel de Klerk for railway employees and loosely resembling a ship, the triangular block's rocketlike tower links the wings of the complex. Admission is by guided tour (English available).
