Eight years after the publication of the well-received Atlas Westelijke Tuinsteden Amsterdam, this book presents a new, stimulating analysis of the developments in one of the largest Dutch urban development projects of the twentieth-century. What has changed in the past years? What are the consequences of social, cultural and economic dynamics in this neighborhood? And what are the consequences of the start-up and stagnation of urban renewal operations in this area? By looking closely at one specific district, this publication provides a new perspective on post-war urban development projects in the Netherlands.
