In 2007 we were the first to start online ‘taste testing’. The motivation for these study’s was that we could not believe that there is an big gap between the taste of architects and the average citizen.
In the media the discussion is always about naming the differences. But we are looking for the opposite; the similarity’s, connections and combinations. If we can collect and increase our knowledge on the similarity’s we can really put our slogan “If you don’t build for people, who do you build for?” into practice.
Using the links you can try different ‘taste test’s’. You can still give your overall view using the original smaaktestnederlandsewoningbouw.nl. In addition you may also give us your marks on our own work via the smaaktestfaro.nl. In that way you can help us to remain sharp in our search for architecture that is widely public supported.
