Together

Cooperation is a virtue

Everyone feels unique, yet is part of a community. Pure individuality is almost non-existent. Since our births we have been influenced by society, which moulds us and teaches us how to live together. Most especially, collective housing development creates cohesion and makes life within a community visible. Dutch residential districts are carefully composed spaces, in which the component parts and the whole form a unified entity. The social housing of the Netherlands is famous far beyond the country’s borders, but is it still as forceful and as communal as a century ago?
