The Yearbook is the international showcase for Dutch architecture. The three editors select special projects that have been completed in the preceding year and describe the most important developments that influence Dutch architecture. In the essays, the people who inhabit and use those buildings and cities are front and centre. How do you create spaces that facilitate encounters and where all are welcome? Kirsten Hannema explores the binding power of stories embedded in places and buildings. Teun van den Ende looks at the relation between politics and architecture, and the measures needed to guarantee the accessibility of cities.
