These two screenshots helped me show how central canals were to Dutch city planning. The first shows the growth of the city inland and how it’s new borders were first created by the people digging a canal and then adding the defensive walls. The second picture shows the ever changing land borders around the city as more land is dredged, but there’s still that entry point that lengthens into a canal. As the port gets farther away from the city. This entry point I to the city had been established and the growth of the city has to accommodate for its existence. My question for Joppe would be whether the foreign nations that ruled the Netherlands adopted the type of city planning done in Amsterdam. Are there cities in Spain or the UK that are as canal and polder heavy?
