Partner | Dutch raise awareness for the country’s youngest built heritage (1965-1990)

Heemschut, the largest Dutch private association for built heritage protection, has published a book to raise awareness for the country’s youngest built heritage: ‘The Netherlands at the end of a millennium’.

The architecture from the period between 1965 and 1990 is unique in its concept and execution. However, the so-called Post ’65 architecture faces lack of interest and pressure from building developments.

Because of the architecture’s young age, there are no legal protective measures to prevent demolition. Heemschut promotes discussion on the future of Post ’65 architecture.

Heemschut is one of the partners of the European Heritage Tribune. Founded in 1911, Heemschut has an extensive history in heritage protection: “Protection starts with awareness and discussion”. For more information (in Dutch), visit Heemschut’s website and read Heemschut’s Post ’65 policy.
