Kijkduin has became part of the City of Den Haag, but in its early years of its existence around 1920 it became part of a large plan . a new villa park was planned. #Meer en BOSCH # was to become an exclusive part of the city near dunes and sea with architecture of the very best of dutch architects and best of all…..yes…. a large part of the original plans were realised, but Kijkduin is still unknown by the majority of architecture fans and vistors to Den Haag. Villa’s by Duiker made this one of the most wanted and exclusive parts of Den Haag and surroundings and very well worth a visit and a walk in the park and after a walk on the beach and for those who visit Kijkduin and still not tired please walk another 500 meters to the HEMELS GEWELF by James Turrell.
A nice small book published by ARTOTEEK is now availabel at http://www.ftn-books.com. It tells the story of the artist village KIJKDUIN in the Interbellum
