  • Notes 
    • always stood in his dominant father's shadow. He studied architecture in Delft and after his graduation in 1883 became his father's assistent, gradually taking over more of his father's work. In 1894 Jos. replaced his father, who had returned to Roermond, as head of the Cuypers office in Amsterdam. From that moment on there are a few churches officially credited to P.J.H. where at least a big influence of Jos. can be suspected. While working for his father he also designed under his own name, and work on his most important work, Haarlem's cathedral, was started in this period. Like his father, he was still a neo-Gothic architect at that time. In 1900 Jos left his father's firm to start a new one together with Jan Stuyt, another former employee of Cuypers sr.. Although the partnership only lasted for nine years, it was a very fruitful period in which the two architects managed to break the dominant position of neo-Gothicism, introducing Romanesque and Byzantine influences on a scale larger than before in Roman Catholic architecture. The last period in Jos Cuypers career is a partnership with his son Pierre jr.. In this period mostly Expressionistic churches were built. Besides building churches, Jos Cuypers also restored many of them, as well as designing several profane buildings. His most important non-religious work is the stock-exchange in Amsterdam.
