This digital booklet is published to accompany a series of three lectures on ‘A Dutch Approach’, organized by H+N+S Landscape Architects to mark their 25th anniversary.

This essay aims to draw attention to the ideology characteristic of H+N+S and to position it as a specific approach to landscape and landscape architecture. The achievements of H+N+S are relatively unknown outside the Netherlands. The result may be a splendid landscape but, more often, the product is groundbreaking research, an exploration, or a vision.
