Mieke Bosse and Peter Drijver are among the pioneers of the renaissance of traditional urbanism and architecture in the Netherlands. As strong engaged promotors of sustainable, liveable cities and towns they are part of an international network of planners, architects, promotors and politicians.
From the nineties on, close ties with Rob and Leon Krier, Lucien Steil, Robert Adam and others resulted in the founding of the Dutch chapter of the Council for European Urbanism. In the Netherlands various formerly isolated working traditional architects and planners were organised in regular meetings to discuss their projects and design issues.
Since the beginning of this century, an international network has been established between the various national chapters of CEU and INTBAU (international network for traditional architecture and urbanism). Exchange of experiences, knowledge and mutual understanding of differences of local culture and economies has deepened the professional debate.
