Landscape architect Adriaan Geuze looks upon the abandonment of the Green Heart with sorrow; it threatens to collapse under the ambitions of aldermen and project developers. Geuze examines the history of environmental planning in the Netherlands and wonders for example why we, while complete delegations from New Orleans come here to admire our water works, build a second Zoetermeer on the Zuidplaspolder, the lowest point in Europe.
