Hoogbouw – Een studie naar Nederlandse hoogbouwcultuur
Tall buildings are often a topic of discussion in the Netherlands. More and more high-rise projects have been realised in recent years. Sometimes from a certain social aspiration, but just as often without a clear goal in the city. Cities are looking for the added value of high-rise buildings: what is the common thread? In this publication, we investigate, for high-rise foundation Stichting Hoogbouw, what makes good high-rise buildings and how to fit them into the city. We discuss realisation aspects and identify the essential preconditions for a successful high-rise project. We do this on the basis of the high-rise landscape in the Netherlands in 2008: where did things go well and what can we learn from them, and what could be better?
