Rietveld Schröder House
This architectural masterpiece breathes the ideals of De Stijl. The unique building is unrivalled both within and outside the oeuvre of the Utrecht architect and designer Gerrit Rietveld (1888-1964).Rietveld was commissioned to design the house in 1924 by the free-thinking Truus Schröder. It was his first complete house and an exuberant experiment. Elaborating on his own furniture designs and the ideas of De Stijl, he built a house on the edge of the city as a three-dimensional, asymmetrical composition. The Rietveld Schröder House was put on the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2000.
