Enterprising architecture. Businesspark Nieuw-Vennep Zuid
Recently the book Enterprising Architecture. Business Park Nieuw-Vennep Zuid was published at Jap Sam Books. Johanna Günther edited this book on architecture of business Parks in the Netherlands and was responsible for its compilation. This Dutch / English book portrays the exceptional business park of Nieuw-Vennep Zuid, its buildings and the whole process of realization in word and image.
Substantive articles throw light on the relations between local and national interests and the influence of these interests on the evolved residential and working landscape. The relationship between the smallest link, the consumer, the human being, and the municipality, the province, the national government and large companies like the Schiphol Group are closely scrutinized. The opportunities and the gaps in developing business parks in the Netherlands in general, and that of this business park in particular, are discussed.
Concluding that architecture and entrepreneurship in no way have to rule out one another, this book contributes largely to the discussion on business park policy in the Netherlands.
The book can be ordered via any bookshop. For more information please follow:
