The world belongs to everyone

The public space in the Netherlands ranges from shopping centres, museums and town halls to squares, parks and national landscapes. That space should be safe, whole and clean, on account of its public accessibility. These are the basic qualities, but the public space is also a cultural statement. In this domain the Netherlands can show what it is proud of and which values it upholds. These designs for public buildings display that cultural élan well, but do we still feel such zeal when we look at our public buildings today?
