World-famous architect Rietveld; unknown in his own city

Gerrit Rietveld, one of the most innovative Dutch architects of the twentieth century, built the iconic Rietveld-Schröder House in 1924. Like a gem, it lies hidden in the city of Utrecht.

De Stijl Year
Rietveld built a number of houses in, among other places, Utrecht. A route through this city soon leads architecture enthusiasts from the Centraal Museum past other Rietveld objects to this exceptional house, and back again. Mijksenaar designed and conceived the new route for the upcoming ‘De Stijl Year’ (2017).


Rietveld Route
A map providing background information and route signs (see above) in the city help visitors get started. These tools provide the residents of Utrecht with an introduction to one of its own world-famous residents.
The colors used in the design are directly derived from the colors of the house, and refer to the art movement De Stijl.
