Building Experiment De Realiteit
After the success of building experiment 'De Fantasie' the same foundation, De Fantasie, opened another competition in 1985, called 'De Realiteit' (Reality). Again, the intention was to
construct temporary houses, so that the imagination of the competitors would not be restricted by regular construction rules.
This time, 17 winners were selected from 185 entries. They were allowed to realize their design on a parcel at the southern lakeside of the Noorderplassen.
Like the imaginative houses of 'De Fantasie', these houses were supposed to last 5 years
but thanks to major world-wide attention they still exist.
Other than the houses of 'De Fantasie', however, these houses are not fit to live in. Therefore, their designers tend to use them as a holiday bungalow nowadays.
