Chapter Summary

This chapter attempts to unite the research agenda's of the two types of inquiry by raising quantitative issues about the size and composition of the building market. It seeks to con-textualise the contributions of architects to the building industry, by also looking at two other major types of actors, the stone-mason, and the brick-mason and carpenter. The chapter focuses on the design elements of the building process. It looks at a number of quantitative dimensions of the building market. On the basis of published tax records, we will be able to sketch a general picture of the expansion of the number of houses in the towns of Holland between 1500 and 1815. The chapter deals with the people designing and constructing these buildings. It also looks at the workforce in the building industry, again to get a sense of its size and composition.
