The driver behind this study was a commitment to find alternative development concepts for the dominant governmental suburban housing program in the Netherlands in the 1990’s called the VinEx. Where the VinEx program resulted in an extremely commonplace generic type of housing suburbs, this intervention proposed putting experience first and generating bespoke types of ways of life and housing based on experiences that were analyzed to form the potential of specific development locations.
