Re-imagining Dutch Urban Life: The Blue House in Amsterdam’, Zara Stanhope examines The Blue House (Het Blauwe Huis) project by the Dutch artist Jeanne van Heeswijk. This social art project is located in the new urban development of Haveneiland, Ijburg, which is part of Amsterdam’s geographical expansion in response to global and local population pressures.
