The view looking south out a rounded window of the new super-contemporary architectural extension to the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. From this window, one can see the Museumplein, a vast lawn criss-crossed with paths for bikes and pedestrians. On the far side is the southern part of the Museumkwatier, an upscale area that’s home to many consulates (the U.S. consulate can be seen at the left in the picture).
