Description

On the occasion of the construction of the 200,000th apartment in The Hague in 1988, an international housing festival was initiated. Forty-five building lots along a one-and-a-half kilometer strip of the Dedemsvaartweg--for a total of 550 houses--are now nearly completely realised, according to an urban development plan designed by Rem Koolhaas's Office for Modern Architecture (OMA).

Housing projects, dwellings, and villas, by Kas Oosterhuis, OMA, Mecanoo, MVRDV, DKV, Bernard Tschumi, and a roster of other leading contemporary architects, blend new materials, alternative energy sources, and flexible floor plans to offer a kaleidoscope of new possibilies in house-building and housing types.

Strip gives a thorough and richly illustrated overview of the projects realised thus far on this one-and-a-half-kilometer-long experiment.
