A Gathering Place

Built in the rapidly growing Jordaan in the early 17th Century, Noorderkerk was commissioned to serve commoners on the north side of town. The square the church is situated on has a famous history, particularly during WWII when it was used as the meeting place for those involved in the February Strike, a public protest against Germany’s treatment of Jews. The church itself, designed in the Renaissance, fits the ideals of symmetry adhered to during that era and is shaped like a perfect Greek cross with each leg as long as its neighbor.
