From Tom Scott.

The Bolwoningen, in Den Bosch, in the Netherlands, are experimental architecture: the surprising part is that people still live there.

Local producer: Jasper Deelen
Camera: Jeroen Simons

Thanks to @NotJustBikes for the Rotterdam cube house footage

A lot of my history research from video is based on 2019 book "Experimentele Woningbouw in Nederland 1968-1980: 64 Gerealiseerde Woonbeloften", by Barzilay, Ferwerda and Blom: https://experimentelewoningbouw.nl/
