TP219 New Manor

Description
The Twenty-First Century Manor House Loenen – An ambitious project like the polder landscape of the Netherlands requires two crucial qualities: one is a strong governing body, the second an entrenched practice of cooperation and negotiation. These two characteristics are the foundation of the Dutch ‘polder model’ of consensus-decision making between unions, employers and goverment that delivered the Dutch economic boom of the 1990s. The polder-like mentality of Dutch society translates easily into architecture, because a building is never the result of a singular will. Instead, it is the product of a dynamic dialogue between the architect and the client, the engineer, and society at large. This proved particularly true during the design of the Vrederijk Estate, ‘peaceful realm’ in Dutch.
