10-06-13 // THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY – MONU’S MOST VALUABLE URBANISM DEBATE
On February 10, 2011 MONU Magazine organized a debate entitled “Most Valuable Urbanism Debate” that aimed to find out what distinguishes a bad Dutch city from a good Dutch city, and what role architects and urban designers play in the production of valuable urbanism. Excerpts of this debate were published in MONU #14. The debate on one of the previous issues, MONU #13: Most Valuable Urbanism, was moderated by Piet Vollaard. The debate panel included three people with three different ideological backgrounds: Jaap van den Bout, Adriaan Geuze, and Floris Alkemade. After a brief introduction by MONU’s editor-in-chief Bernd Upmeyer, and preceding the debate, each of the panel members was asked to make 10 -12 minute statements.
