Experimental

The pursuit of innovation

Without experiment, the built environment would be a boring, dead space. Innovation in architecture is often driven by a few convinced protagonists of an ideology or idea. The experimental passion of Dutch architects is internationally renowned: from the Functionalists who made the structure the starting point for their designs around 1920 to the conceptual design bureaus which attracted global interest in the 1990s. This vanguard makes a strong case for transforming their ideas into tangible designs. A great many tryouts are produced during that process, sometimes even buildings that are actually built. Society maintains its vitality by experimenting. But is our architecture still experimental? Should the discipline rely on innovation platforms or look to inspired individuals?
