Five-part Film Series and Conference Lectures

Pioneers of the Dutch Modern House

This program consists of five modules, each with a keynote lecture and an episode of a new series of thematic videos in which twenty iconic houses across the Netherlands are featured: from the Amsterdam School and De Stijl to Postmodernism; from Gerrit Rietveld to Mart van Schijndel and many others.
The thematic video series also presents famous examples of social housing, an area in which The Netherlands was particularly rich in the 20th-century.
