A high-quality metropolitan landscape is becoming a key success factor for knowledge economies worldwide. How can we adapt to this trend in the Netherlands? Are we using our landscape to our benefit in the global battle for talent? And do we invest enough in the development, protection and accessibility of the metropolitan landscape?
The recent publication Blind Spot offers instruments, backgrounds and inspiring international examples. They are the starting point of our workshop in two Dutch pilot regions: the Metropolitan Region of Rotterdam–The Hague and the Metropolitan Region of Amsterdam. The workshop is open to designers, policy makers and other stakeholders, also from other regions.
Blind Spot is an initiative of the Deltametropolis Association, West8, Wageningen UR, Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands, ministry of Economic Affairs and Staatsbosbeheer.
The book Blind Spot is for sale at the IABR–Bookshop during IABR–2016
