Abstract (in English)

In the 17th century, the Netherlands formed the hearth form which an inconceivably rampant fire of expansion spread to America, Africa and Asia. Many of today's huge population centres, such as New York, Cape Town and Jakarta, still bear witness to their origins in the form of the 17th-century Dutch street pattern of their inner centres.
