Spanning a period of more than 750 years, this is the first complete overview of architecture and urban design in The Hague that has been produced between 1250 and 2010. Divided into six areas, it charts more than 300 architectural projects and buildings, as well as street furniture and public spaces through texts and images. Its entries include monuments such as the Kloosterkerk and Jacob van Campen’s Mauritshuis; modern works such as P.L. Kramer’s Bijenkorf department building and Berlage’s Gemeentemuseum; and recent buildings by Rem Koolhaas, Richard Meier, and Herman Hertzberger, among others. Historical illustrations feature alongside drawings and colour photographs that have been especially produced for the guide.
