On cities, railroads and highways

This series of maps were designed to support the advice the Government Advisor on the Infrastructure Ton Venhoeven gave to the Minister of Infrastructure and Environment, Schultz van Haegen, at his official departure. Parallel to the advice, the maps are also included in the book “De Mobiele Stad” (The Mobile City).

This series of maps were designed to support the advice the Government Advisor on the Infrastructure Ton Venhoeven gave to the Minister of Infrastructure and Environment, Schultz van Haegen, at his official departure. Parallel to the advice, the maps are also included in the book “De Mobiele Stad” (The Mobile City).

The main map shows networks of public transport (in yellow) versus the car-based network (in purple). These devide the country in locations that are part of the network and those that are disconnected. According to the advice, nodes where different modes of transport meet offer most potential for future developments.

Further analytical maps show the country within its European context and developments in (use of) its infrastructure to support Venhoeven’s advice to create a more robust network.

The Cloud Collective (Gerjan Streng) has been in charge of collecting data from different sources and combining them into one convincing image. The graphic design was done in collaboration with Malkit Shoshan and One Architecture. The book ‘De Mobiele Stad’ was written by Ton Venhoeven, journalist Tijs van den Boomen, Rutger Oolbekkink (Inbo), Thomas Straatemeijer (Goudappel Coffeng) en Rick ten Doeschate (The Cloud Collective).
