Although much of what is normal in housing construction today was once innovative or even radical, the history of housing also shows numerous experiments that have just faded away. In the light of new housing challenges, it is expedient to re-examine these renewal proposals.0The new edition of DASH, concerning experimental housing, examines the subject in the broadest sense: What is the European experience with housing experiments? What have the Dutch prototypes brought us? In a series of articles and interviews, we look at the past, but also at the future: if, say, a million homes have to be realized in the Netherlands by 2030, what kind of dwellings are we talking about? In the project documentation we present experimental housing projects based on themes that are relevant in the contemporary situation.
