Overview

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 realized, 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 realized thus far on this one-and-a-half-kilometer-long experiment.

Documents both the built and the unbuilt home designs prepared for the Dedemsvaartweg Housing Festival organized by the city of The Hague.

Meet the Author

MVRDV was founded in Rotterdam in 1991 by Winy Maas, Jacob van Rijs, and Nathalie de Vries. Classic projects include the gravity-defying WoZoCo old-age home in Amsterdam, the headquarters for public broadcasting company VPRO in Hilversum, and the recently completed Housing Silo in Amsterdam. The firm's experimental research projects on density, using a method of shaping space through complex amounts of data, have resulted in the publication FARMAX, the traveling exhibition Metacity/Datatown, and Pig City and Costa Iberica.

Bernard Tschumi Architects was established in 1982 in Paris with the commission for the Parc de la Villette. Since 1988, the firm's main office has been located in New York. Completed projects include Le Fresnoy National Studio of Contemporary Arts in Turcoing, France; Alfred Lerner Hall at Columbia University in New York; and a 7,000-seat concert hall and exhibition complex in Rouen, France.

Steven Holl was born in 1947 in Bremerton, Washington. He graduated from the University of Washington and pursued architecture studies in Rome in 1970. He opened his firm in 1976 and is now recognized as one of America's most prominent architects. The Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, Finland (1998) is generally considered to be his masterpiece. Other notable work includes The Sarphatistraat Offices, Amsterdam (2000), Chapel of St. Ignatius, Seattle, Washington (1997). the School of Art and Art History at the University of Iowa (Iowa City), The Swiss Residence (Washington, D.C.), Higgins Hall Center Section at the Pratt Institute School of Architecture (Brooklyn, New York) and the Loisium Wine Visitor Center, Hotel and Spa (Langenlois,Austria).
