history of 'De Uithof' reflects the changes in architectural
development of the last 45 years. Starting with the 1960s
we find brutal concrete giants that represent an uninhibited
belief in progress, followed by a generation of the 1970s,
showing an increasing struggle with uncertainties. After
a period of masterplanning during the 1980s, a new generation
of buildings arise. A number of ambitious and renowned architects
transformed 'De Uithof' into a showcase of modern architecture.
Modern architecture and photography tend to be mutually inspiring. Jeroen
Bosman published a series of pictures showing his view on the interplay of
lines in 'De Uithof'.
