Quiet living near nature, close to urban facilities such as hospitals, schools, employment and cultural opportunities. Those were the starting points for the new cities that were built in the Netherlands from 1970 onwards. The richly illustrated Atlas Nieuwe Steden [Atlas of New Cities] gives an overview of their genesis, present situation and the plans for the future.
