SYMPOSIUM | Complexity: Dutch and American Housing

5:30 PM, October 6 to 6:30 PM, October 8, 2017

 

Curated by Professor Julia Robinson, Dutch Complex Housing explores a special form of multi-family dwelling developed in response to limited location and socially responsible policy.

The exhibition profiles eight visually rich structures that are each responsive to their location and are formed to house variety of housing types and income levels plus non-housing functions to create diverse communities. In the Netherlands, where housing is a right, and urban design is central to providing adequate housing, complex housing emerged to make the best use of public transportation and infrastructure, generate income, and provide diversity of lifestyle in dense, urban settings. Can this innovative type of housing be replicated elsewhere?

 

Dutch Complex Housing presents this content in four parts:

 

  • An introduction to housing in the Netherlands
  • An introduction to typological methodology used to study housing
  • The eight examples  - De Muzen, Silodam, De Zilvervloot, Carnisselande, Virjburcht, La Grande Cour, De Opgang, De Beeklaan
  • Principles that generate this type of housing and its potential for replicability elsewhere.
