As a polycentric conurbation in the north-west of the Netherlands, the Randstad is a complex structure that has evolved over centuries under the influence of diverse and shifting actors. It overlaps with numerous economic spaces, including ones for oil. This lecture explores how oil companies with the support of public planning and private corporations have co-shaped the landscapes and mindscapes of the Randstad through transformation, transport, consumption, administration and promotion of petroleum in parallel with other actors creating a petroleumscape that consists of diverse evolving spatial patterns and built forms as well as mindsets.

Carola Hein will elaborate on the above during the (online) Studium Generale Leeuwarden lecture on Tuesday 26 January 2021 starting at 8:00 PM Carola Hein is Professor and Head, Chair History of Architecture and Urban Planning at Delft University of Technology. She has published widely in the field of architectural, urban and planning history and has tied historical analysis to contemporary development.
