Designing colonial cities: the making of modern town planning in the Dutch East Indies and Indonesia 1905-1950


Far-reaching socio-economic changes caused by burgeoning private enterprise,
in combination with new insights and demands in terms of hygiene, infrastructure,
architecture and town planning; emerging anti-sentiments among growing numbers
of indigenous inhabitants; and the direct confrontation of administrators with local
issues: together these provided a prolific setting for the making of modern town
planning in the Dutch East Indies in the first half of the twentieth century.

Kasteel de Goede Hoop

Kaapstad, Zuid-Afrika



Built by the Dutch East India Company between 1666 and 1679, the Castle is the oldest colonial building in South Africa. It replaced an older fort called the Fort de Goede Hoop which was made out of clay and timber and built by Jan van Riebeeck upon his arrival at the Cape in 1652, in addition to two redouts Redout Kyckuit and Redout Duijnhoop, which were built at the mouth of the Salt River in 1654. The purpose of the Dutch settlement in the Cape was to act as a replenishment station for ships passing the treacherous coast around the Cape on long voyages between the Netherlands and the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia).

During 1664, tensions between Britain and the Netherlands rose with rumours that war was imminent. That same year, Commander Zacharias Wagenaer, successor to Jan van Riebeeck, was instructed by Commissioner Isbrand Goske to build a pentagonal fortress out of stone. The first stone was laid on 2nd January 1666. Work was interrupted frequently because the VOC was reluctant to spend money on the project, but on 26th April 1679, the five bastions were named after the main titles of William III of Orange-Nassau: Leerdam to the west, with respectively Buuren, Katzenellenbogen, Nassau and Oranje clockwise from it.

Sketch of Castle of Good Hope Courtyard in 1680. In 1682, the gated entry replaced the old entrance which had faced the sea. A bell tower, situated over the main entrance, was built in 1684 — the original bell, the oldest in South Africa, was cast in Amsterdam in 1697 by the East-Frisian bell-maker Claude Fremy and weighs just over 300 kilograms. It was used to announce time, as well as warning citizens in case of danger, since it could be heard 10 kilometers away. It was also rung to summon residents and soldiers when important announcements needed to be made.

Inside, the fortress housed a church, bakery, various workshops, living quarters, shops and cells, among other facilities. The yellow paint on the walls was originally chosen because it lessened the effect of heat and the scorching sun. A wall, built in order to protect citizens in case of an attack, divides the inner courtyard which also houses the well-known De Kat Balcony which was designed by Louis Michel Thibault with reliefs and sculptures by Anton Anreith. The original was built in 1695, but rebuilt in its current form between 1786 and 1790. From the balcony, announcements were made to soldiers, slaves and burghers of the Cape. The balcony leads to the William Fehr collection of paintings and antique furniture.

The famed Kat Balcony, with its sculpture by Anton Anreith, is certainly the most beautiful aspect of the Castle.

Dutch East India Co. hospital (1670's?)

Colombo, Sril Lanka


Built as a hospital by the Dutch East India Company (VOC), it has been used for several different purposes, over the years. It is believed to have existed since 1681, as recorded by German Christoper Schweitzer. The Dutch established the Colombo hospital to look after the health of the officers and other staff serving under the Dutch East India Company. The hospital's close proximity to the harbour allowed it to serve Dutch seafarers. Most patients were provided with a mat, while the most ill were given a mattress. Patients clothing was imported from Tuticorin, India. The surgeon with the longest service at the Colombo hospital was Alleman. Alleman sought to improve conditions at the hospital, including increasing provisions. The most famous of all the surgeons who worked in the Colombo hospital was undoubtedly Paul Hermann, who served from 1672-79. Herman has been described as the father of botany in Sri Lanka.

Paintings from the era show that it once had a canal running along what is now Canal Row lane. This canal was filled in by British colonists after their capture of the city.

Post IndependenceThe building was the Colombo Fort Police Station from the early 1980s to 1990s, prior to which it housed the Colombo Apothecaries. It suffered heavy damage in the LTTE attack that followed the Central Bank bombing in 1996. In 2011, it has been transformed into a shopping and dining precinct, where the historic architecture has been preserved.

The building reflects seventeenth-century dutch colonial architecture.

The building has five wings forming two courtyards. It is designed to keep out the heat and humidity and provide a comfortable environment within. Like many Colombo Dutch buildings of the era, the walls are 50 cm thick. The structure features massive teak beams. The upper floor is located in the front wing and can be reached with a wooded staircase. This upper storey has a wooden floor. A long open veranda runs along the length of each wing of the building.

Paintings of the front and rear views of the Colombo hospital, done in 1771 by a Dutch artist - presumably Johannes Rach - are preserved in the KITLV at Leiden, in the Netherlands. These show that the building has changed little.

Was Soerabaja an important town to the Dutch during that time, compared to Batavia for example?

Certainly - Surabaya, became the second largest in the Dutch East Indies after Batavia.
"Surabaya became a major trading center under the Dutch colonial government, and hosted the largest naval base in the colony".

www.museumsyndicate.com - Lutheran Church, 1780


Strand street / Buitengracht

Kaapstad, South-Africa


The Lutheran Church is one of the oldest Protestant churches in South Africa, consecrated in 1787. The bell tower was added in 1818. In 1771, Martin Melck gave his fellow Lutherans permission to hold services in his barn in Strand Street. A few years later, consent was given to convert the barn into the Lutheran Church. The church's carved pulpit by Anreith has become famous. Melck had set aside land next to the church for a parsonage, though it was only after his death that it was built. Designed by Anreith, Martin Melck House is the only surviving example of an 18th century townhouse complete with dakkamer (roof-room). On the other side of the church is the Sexton's House, built in 1787. It is now restored and serves as the Netherlands Embassy.
