Its starting point is the basic infrastructure, the structural funding system of the Dutch Ministry of Culture.

You will find basic information on funding and policy institutions, research and education facilities, as well as organizations that produce and present architecture, design and e- culture.

Holland is of course home to the star architect Rem Koolhaas, but offers a array of small and large scale architecture firms building world wide. Specialties include landscape architecture, water management and urban density. Dutch design has received international acclaim for its conceptual and humorous stance, as well as being a growing economic force. Dutch e-culture pushes back boundaries and excels in fields like serious gaming and augmented reality.
