Ports are clearly demarcated structures on land and water. They are fenced in, easily recognizable on satellite and ortho‐photo images, and they have specific functions. This apparent clarity of ports, their function and outline, in relation to nearby urban and rural areas, becomes more complex when explored through the lens of land use, that is th...

Dat is de rode draad van de Atlas van de Schie, een publicatie van Erfgoedhuis Zuid-Holland en de Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed. De ondertitel is dan ook ‘2500 jaar werken aan land en water’. De Atlas ver...

De Atlas van het Westland – 10.000 jaar ruimtelijke ontwikkeling toont hoe het landschap, de inrichti...

In het voorjaar van 1929 werd in Den Haag het Gewestelijk plan Zuid-Holland-West tentoongesteld. Anders dan de titel suggereert toonde de expositie geen ontwerp, maar een voorstudie; een verzameling van gegevens die nodig waren bij het opstellen van een gewestelijk plan. Niet eerder waren de resultaten van een dergelijk vooronderzoek in Nederland m...
