Regionale Identiteit examines how and why art has been used to develop spatial planning for regional areas where cultural identity plays a central role. Six projects are exhaustively documented and are examined concerning organisation, time plan, the commitment of art, spatial planning, and their mutual relation as well as their influence in the future thinking about and/or the arranging of the landscape. Moreover a schematic overview is ordered of the 25 most important projects in the Netherlands where art, spatial planning and landscape architecture have been combined.’ (publisher’s text)
