History and monuments play an important role in city planning, although the way they are valued is subject to constant change. Although plans in which older neighbourhoods are earmarked to make way for new buildings and thoroughfares are a thing of the past, Amsterdam is currently faced with the huge challenge of crating ten thousand new homes, to become more sustainable and find solutions to the ever growing numbers of visitors. That is the dilemma Gabri van Tussenbroek addresses in his inaugural lecture.
G. van Tussenbroek, professor of Urban Identity and Monuments, in particular of the city of Amsterdam: De mythe van de onveranderlijkheid. Veranderende opvattingen over Amsterdamse monumenten.
This event is open to the public.
( Please note that the lecture is in Dutch.)
