G. Rietveld
designed the Schroder
House in Utrecht
Rietveld-Schroder House, Utrecht 1924. Rietveld, working with building materials which possess physical weight, makes them weightless, so that new interrelati-onships can be established and the new aims be achie-ved.These seem tobe a sort of objective compo-sition of planes and lines.The space is exploited to the full. The idea underlying the design of the house culminates in the glass-enclosed corner of the living story.
Thanks to the open corner, you are not, when inside,separated from the outside world, you are in the middle of it. H. Hertzberger
