Monuments need to become more sustainable in the coming years. With social housing that also has monumental status, the challenge can be very great. In Hilversum, three monumental garden suburbs were made sustainable, most of them social housing.
The article Sustainable Dudok? The transformation of three monumental social housing complexes in Hilversum is the result of research by Isabel Timmermans, an Architecture History and Monument Conservation student at the University Utrecht.
Timmermans examines the heritage values of monumental social housing in the Bloemenbuurt, Electrobuurt and Liebergen garden suburbs in Hilversum, the preservation of those houses and how those transformations took place.
