During this tour, the most important architectural highlights of the Westelijke Tuinsteden are shown. The ideas of urban planner Cornelis van Eesteren, visual artist Constant Nieuwenhuys and architect Aldo van Eyck will also be discussed with special attention to their views on the concepts of light, air and space together with their ideas about the Homo Ludens (playing human). Artist and volunteer Rob Loos, programme coordinator Rosa van Rumpt and director Anouk de Wit were all involved by the creation of the cycling round. It will take approximately 1.5 hours to complete the tour and the language will be in Dutch. The tour will soon be available for free download here.
