Highrise projects in dutch cities are often subject to public debate. In the last years, more and more tall buildings have been realised, and also in smaller cities like Arnhem and Tilburg. Although sometimes these buildings work out well and grow into a city's pride, in many cases their implications on traffic, materialisation and daylight are insufficiently investigated. City councils are looking for the argumentation to build tall buildings in specific places.
This publication maps the current highrise landscape in the Netherlands. What is a tall building, how does it work and what can it contribute to the city and city life. We focus on crucial aspects in realisation of highrises and chart current keys to success.
