The Eastern Docklands have been developed since the seventies from a harbour site to a highly popular residential area with superb and diverse architecture. The district even became an important tourist stop: architecture tourists and everybody else enjoy the site. During our walk we visit the ‘hot spots’ of the area: the monumental architecture of the KNSM-eiland, the remarkable dwellings, world class footbridges and canals of the Java-eiland, the Gold Coast on Borneo and the impressive residential block The Whale on Sporenburg.
