THE WESTERN GARDEN CITIES
have its origin 1935-1970 in the plans of the Public Building Comity as
well as in the thoughts of the urban planner Cornelius van Eesteren.
The urban concept was based on the General Extension Plan for Amsterdam
dating from 1934. The slab buildings result directly from the ideas of
the functionalists and the CIAM. All inhabitants were supposed to
profit equally from light, air and space. Standardised housing was
combined with collective outside space.
