Hans Venhuizen structured this study in such a way as to result in proposals for layout and uses for the area, culminating in a catalogue. This brings transformation possibilities in view that can be adopted by anyone who wishes for projection on the specific context of the Krabbeplas. design The point fo depature fot the design of the book is ‘Neufert, Bauentwerfslehre'.
