Art as Urban Strategy

The Beyond programme of art is utterly unique in both concept and scale. Launched in 1997 in Leidsche Rijn, the largest new-style housing estate in the Netherlands, its art exploits the relationship between urban planning, landscape, architecture and the community that takes shape in this setting near Utrecht.
This book is a thoughtful study of ten years of Beyond, from the initial plans to the fulfilment of projects like the Paper Dome and The Building.
