Dortsman, Adriaan or Adriaen (1625–82). Dutch architect and military engineer. Born in Vlissingen, he practised in Amsterdam from 1665, and designed the Nieuwe Lutherse Kerk (1668–71), a domed rotunda with an ambulatory around half its circumference. He supervised the construction of the defences at Amsterdam and Naarden, and built several groups of houses on the Heerengracht and Keizersgracht, Amsterdam (1665–72), in a refined, plain, stripped style, the only architectural emphases being on door-cases, balconies, and crowning elements.
