Presentation of the Dutch most important waterworks in text and image

The Netherlands is not only known for its clogs and tulips, but also for its waterworks. From the Stormvloedkering (flood barrier) in Zeeland and the Balgstuw (weir) in Flevoland to the new locks in the Maas River: besides examples of unprecedented technical ingenuity, these so-called wet infrastructural works are also an integrated part of Dutch public space and culture.

The publication Waterworks in the Netherlands: Tradition and Innovation portrays the diversity and spatial, cultural and cultural-historical signifi cance of these works of engineering. This beautifully designed book presents some 50 of the most important waterworks including extensive photographic and textual documentation as well as three essays that exhaustively discuss the technical, administrative and cultural signifi cance of these waterworks in the context of the Dutch water system.
