Puzzle Amsterdam18.20€The General Expansion Plan (Algemeen Uitbreidingsplan, or AUP) is an urban plan for the Dutch city of Amsterdam drawn up in 1934 by the architect Cornelis van Eesteren. Based on the previous plan, the Zuid Plan of 1915, by Hendrik Petrus Berlage, the AUP regulated the expansion of the city due to the strong population growth that had occurred since the end of the 19th century. Following a defined “survey before plan” strategy, Van Eesteren based the design process on empirical research founded on demographic and economic statistics, but also on the built heritage, industrial development, and on the city traffic. Minimal urban units were defined, and housing, the most important element, was articulated with public spaces, commercial facilities and a transport network, following the functionalist principle of dedicating each space to a specific function: living, working and leisure. These units were grouped together in districts that shared larger-scale services such as large parks and public facilities. Number of pieces: 540 Dimensions: 35 x 50 cm Box dimensions: 8 x 8 x 28cm
Puzzle Roma18.20€The Nova Topografia di Roma by Nolli is, undoubtedly, one of the most remarkable maps about Rome ever made. The large-scale map was designed by Giovanni Battista Nolli, an Italian engineer and architect, in 1748, in collaboration with Giovanni Battista Piranesi, and dedicated to Pope Benedict XIV. The remarkable original size, 176 x 208 cm, was achieved by the juxtaposition of 12 sheets, offering a representation of the city, with vivid detail on its streets, churches and other monuments, including more than 300 churches’ floor plans. Additionally, the map featured an index of the most remarkable buildings of Rome, “Delle Fabbriche più ragguardevoli contenute nella Pianta”. The map quickly became an urban representation model due to its topographical accuracy and planimetric richness. Nolli’s Rome map is still a significant reference to the cartographic production.

The SDUK publications were dealing with useful subjects as history, geography, zoology in an easy way to support those who had just learned to read to improve their reading skills and knowledge. Among several publications, the SDUK published some extraordinarily detailed atlas. At the time there was nothing like that anywhere in the world for its quality and price.
