That City is Mine!

Urban Ideal Images in Public Debates and City Plans, Amsterdam & Rotterdam 1945 - 1995

De onderstaande tekst is niet beschikbaar in het Nederlands en wordt in het Engels weergegeven.
This thesis is about urban ideal images. It is about dreams – not fictitious beliefs, but dreams that humankind can realize tomorrow. It is about images from intellectuals, pastry cooks, urban planners and firemen. About people who deeply care about their cities, about their hopes, frustrations, anger and optimism. They describe their ideals in city debates to gain support, and try to eliminate those with different urban ideal images. They grouse, cuddle, quarrel, adore allies and blacken enemies. But are they successful? Do people change their urban ideal images because of these discussions? Does the local planning council change their plans because they conflict with ideals of citizens? The answers can be found in this book.
