Gerrit Thomas Rietveld

Dutch architect among the most important of the 20th 20th- is inspired by the ideas developed by the country painter Piet Mondrian that Rietveld applies to the three dimensions working on asymmetric geometric offset and the search for formal dialogue between volumes and primary colors, according to the principles of the De Stijl movement also known as neoplasticism. A formal element that stands out not only in his realizations, but also in drawings and architectural studies, which seem to give volume to Mondrian's ideas in painting.

Active mainly in the Netherlands, he designed, among others, the 1924 House of Schroder in Utrecht, built in accordance with the 16 points published by Theo Van Doesburg, the "Row-Houses" in Utrecht from 1931-1934, the Dutch pavilion at the 1954 Venice Biennale, the Rietveld Pavilion in the garden of the Kroller-Muller museum in Otterloo in 1965 (originally built as a sculpture pavilion in 1955 in Arnhem , later torn down and rebuilt), and the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam (opened in 1973).
