Atlas AUP Gebieden Amsterdam provides insight into the cultural, historical, architectural and urbanist appreciation of the post-war suburbs of Amsterdam (AUP = Algemeen Uitbreidings Plan, elaboration of the General Extension Plan, 1935-1970). These suburbs are seen as a milestone within the urban development and history of the Netherlands.
This bookcase consists of thematic articles, a set of detailed topographic maps of the AUP-areas and a beautiful photo essay by Bart Sorgedrager, which show the interrelationships between urban development, infrastructure, parks and buildings.
