16th-Century Amsterdam Stunningly Visualized with 3D Animation

The Ams­ter­dam Muse­um teamed up with the Dutch cre­ative agency Plu­sOne to cre­ate a series of videos for the new Ams­ter­dam DNA exhi­bi­tion — an exhi­bi­tion that offers a three-dimen­sion­al 45-minute jour­ney through Ams­ter­dam’s his­to­ry. Plu­sOne cre­at­ed sev­en videos in total. The clip above comes from the sec­ond film called Revolt Against King and Church, and it obvi­ous­ly brings you back to Ams­ter­dam in the 16th cen­tu­ry. The clip below offers an aes­thet­ic intro­duc­tion to the exhi­bi­tion itself. h/t The Atlantic
