Europe was hurt badly during the Second WorldWar. The Netherlands, despite the dimensions of the task ahead, the poverty and the significant war damage, took up reconstruction expeditiously. The sense of optimism led to a surprisingly wide diversity in architecture, urban planning and landscape design. The application of new techniques and materials led to exceptional experiments. The reconstruction of the Netherlands in the years 1945-1965 was a huge feat. This publication gives an overview of the buildings in the re-emerging Netherlands and examines the significance of this heritage of the reconstruction for current tasks of transformation and rezoning.
