"They see a new development like a bicycle bridge, when a part of the park has to be removed as a chance. This shows that an intriguing, intuitive form of managing is possible and surprises. We can learn a lot about how the point of view of the artists add to the surroundings. Highly recommended!"
To recount the story of this extraordinary park well, the editors chose a variety of perspectives and lots of (historical) illustrations. In recent photographs, Ienke Kastelein captured how the park reveals itself anew with every visit.
With a preface by Laurie Cluitmans (curator Centraal Museum Utrecht) and Bart Rutten (director Centraal Museum Utrecht), and an epilogue by Kees Diepeveen (alderman for housing, public space, Overvecht, City of Utrecht).
Text contributions by Martine Bakker, Renée Borgonjen, Floris Brekelmans, Sofia Dupon, Marc Nolden, Witold van Ratingen, Bettina van Santen, Piet Vollaard. Translations by Kate Eaton.
