The Fortifications and City Walls of ‘s-Hertogenbosch
The jury was highly impressed by the complexity of the project undertaken by the fortified town of ‘s-Herogenbosch to restore the decaying town walls in a manner congruent with the historic town centre. The restoration process firstly made the fortification walls more visible for the inhabitants through a traditionally crafted new passage. An information centre was also built around the excavated turret and the older parts of the walls. The project was conducted to the highest standard due to expert historical, archaeological, technical and ecological research.
