1. John Habraken

        Bio
        John Habraken (b. 1928) published the book De dragers en de mensen in 1961, in which he presented a radical alternative to the construction of mass housing in the Netherlands (the book was published in English as Supports: An Alternative to Mass Housing in 1972). Habraken subsequently got involved in the Foundation for Architects’ Research (SAR), becoming its director in 1964. The ideas of the foundation, which focused on alter- native housing design, attracted national and international interest. From 1975 to 1981 Habraken was head of the Department of Architecture and Planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, remaining with MIT until his retirement in 1989. Habraken is the author of numerous books, research reports and articles. His theoretical research has earned him international fame. Habraken has received various accolades throughout his life, including the David Roëll Prize in 1979, de Oeuvre Prize of the Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture (BKVB) in 1996 and the Royal Institute of Dutch Architects (BNA) Kubus in 2003. That same year, Habraken was made a Knight of the Order of the Netherlands Lion.
