(Ton Lemaire) The Low Countries - 1999, № 7, pp. 53-59

The Low Countries: affluent and very densely populated, having increasingly to contend with the tension and perhaps discrepancy between prosperity and well-being, between working and living, between economy and ecology and between comfort and beauty, dichotomies which are expressed in the landscape.

Or will it be a warning of what it should NOT be like?
