H.Th. Wijdeveld. 15 Miles into the Earth, 1944.
NAI Collection, WIJD 470
It cannot be denied that Wijdeveld’s attitude was experimental. Especially in the latter years of his life he concentrated on large-scale, utopian projects in which he was seeking for a new relationship between mankind, nature and culture. He situated this 1944 design for an international geological research centre in a shaft in the earth at a depth of 15 miles.
