Description: Architect Gerrit Thomas Rietveld designed and built Utrecht’s Rietveld Schröder House in 1924, which was commissioned by Ms Truus Schröder-Schräder. This tiny family house, with its internal flexible spatial arrangement, and its visual and formal qualities, was a manifesto of the De Stijl group ideals among the artists and architects of the1920s Netherlands. It has since become an icon of the Modern Movement in architecture. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
