The city is the most beautiful building!” Exhibition W.M. Dudok as a city builder

- August 31st 2022

The exhibition addresses the topicality of Dudok's ideas. In the exhibition space of the DAC you can admire the iconic urban designs that are not only very beautiful, but also functional, full of character and hyper-contextual. In the middle of the room is a large work table that shows as many facets as possible of the urban planning field; from smooth sketches, tendentious headlines, letters on precarious subjects to detailed presentation drawings. Dudok's urban plans for Hilversum can be seen in the hallway of the town hall, from the search for the best location for the new town hall to the plan for a modernized village center with high-rise buildings. It will not escape anyone's attention that the termination plan for Hilversum from the 1930s has proven to be permanent. Dudok's conception of city and nature is once again of great significance in the current debate about spatial quality in Hilversum and plays an important role in the environmental vision for the Hilversum urban landscape as the garden city of the 21st century.


Every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday until August 31, 2022
