This publication shows all 64 experimental housing projects that were realized between 1968 and 1980. Special housing construction experiments, spread throughout the Netherlands, that can be a source of inspiration for today’s housing challenge. Some are known, such as the Kasbah in Hengelo and the Cube Houses in Helmond, but also unknown pearls, such as De Bergen in Capelle aan den IJssel and the Wandelstraat in Woerden.

There are 10,000 homes in the Netherlands with the designation “experimental” as a result of a unique experiment policy from the 1970s. From 1968, the Experimental Housing program led to innovation in public housing and urban renewal in response to the large-scale and monotonous residential areas from the 1950s and 1960s. Architects, urban planners and their clients contributed experiments in the field of housing, housing and living environment.

64 special experiments from the 1970s revisited. From residential areas, residential decks, dome houses, terrace apartments, residential groups, timber frame houses to urban renewal projects. IN DUTCH!
