The fourth part in the series 'design and politics' is about Dutch compact city policies. Highrise is a popular issue in discussions about intensification of the city, but the arguments that are deployed do not always make sense. In the essay, Daan Zandbelt puts pros and contras in a perspective. It is based on earlier research that was carried out for the Dutch Council on Tall Buildings, that is available as a printed publication.
