Koen van Velsen
It was Wiek Röling, City Architect to Haarlem, who set aside part of the Zuiderpolder development for experimental housing. Though the most experimental projects, cepezed's freestanding industrialized units and Hertzberger's floating homes, were never built, the results are rewarding all the same. The principal attention-grabber is Koen van Velsen's block of terrace flats whose oblique lines threaten to send it toppling.
