The following are plans and analysis of five Dutch complex housing projects from urban centers in the Netherlands. The five detailed plans are a portion of a larger analysis of nine housing complexes as a part of Professor of Architecture Julia W. Robinson's larger research on these building that will be published in 2015. These plans make sense of the various pathways through which one could traverse each building, and map out how each of distinct unit type connects to produce a varied and functional community. While many of the floors, appear straight forward, traversing from floor to floor could occur in many different places depending on the need. The floors themselves do not all stack neatly. Many of the buildings integrate courtyards, and pattern the existing physical structure, so as the best unite the additional non-residential spaces with the units. This design is what makes these complexes serves as more than just apartment buildings, but as unique multi-functional communities on each floor.
The posters were created to display our illustrations produced for a published research book as a part of our UROP studying Dutch complex housing. The work was produced by Andra Zerbe and Corinne Deger. We are part of the College of Design, Department of Architecture. Our research was facilitated by Professor Julia W. Robinson.
This research was supported by the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP).
