When these kinds of planning actually do come alive, when people find that something in their daily living environment has changed, they are not sure why. Seeking to shed some light on how spatial planning and daily life do intersect to a great degree, photographer Theo Baart, journalist Tracy Metz, and urban planner Tjerk Ruimschotel present, each in their own language, a portrait of the changing Netherlands. This Atlas presents a picture of the new cognitive map of the Netherlands inhabitants, a map that exchanges the traditional concentric socio-spatial structure (house-neighborhood-city) for a far more intricate overlap of perspectives on and perceptions of our environment, giving us great insight into the complexity of a national landscape on the move.
