Fifteen domestic scenes illustrate important points in the history of housing construction in the Netherlands since 1850- all are representative of prevailing Dutch design philosophies and the internationally respected Dutch public housing tradition and living culture. Specific periods are addressed on the basis of selected projects: Amsterdams Vondelstraat by P.J.H.

Cuijpers, Plan Zuid by Berlage, Amsterdams Betondorp (Concrete Village), the Kiefhoek by J.J.P. Oud, Rotterdams Pendrecht and Alexanderpolder neighborhoods, Almere, Amsterdams Nieuwmarkt neighborhood, and Ypenburg. Utopian designs by the architects H.T. Wijdeveld, Cornelis van Eesteren and OMA are also included. Together the projects constitute an historic typology of urban living and a cultural-historical expose about domestic life in the Netherlands. Each domestic landscape is described by a different author in a brief and sometimes highly personal text and illustrated with visual documentation from the collection of the Netherlands Architecture Institute.
