Hertzberger discusses the indeterministic concepts incorporated into the Experimental Houses in Delft, Netherlands. Within this project, the program is not determined: the residents were provided with a shell in which they could individualize their spaces. He states that it is not the architect’s responsibility to make programmatic decisions, but to create conditions that provide choices. He emphasized the importance of understanding human behavior. And while some homes within this project had a “beautiful sort of awfulness,” he feels that when people are given freedom and responsibility, the create amazing things.
