Structuralism

Herman Hertzberger Key projects by Herman Hertzberger Dezeen

Hertzberger can be considered, along with Aldo van Eyck, as the influence behind the Dutch structuralist movement of the 1960s and 1970s. Among Hertzberger's best known buildings are the "Diagoon" houses (1971), the Montessori school in Delft (1966–70) and the administration building for the Centraal Beheer Insurance Company building in Apeldoorn (1970–72). He believed that the architect's role was not to provide a complete solution, but to provide a spatial framework to be filled in by the users. This idea is coming from the Participation movement, initiated in 1961 by John Habraken with his book "Supports". Herman Hertzberger was one of the first architects, who produced architectural solutions with user participation. Centraal Beheer and the "Diagoon" houses are belonging to the most inspiring examples of the international Participation movement.
