About Gerrit Thomas Rietveld
Gerrit Thomas Rietveld (24 June 1888 – 25 June 1964) was a Dutch furniture designer and architect. He is one of the principal members of the Dutch artistic movement called De Stijl, Rietveld is famous for his Red and Blue Chair and for the Rietveld Schröder House, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
What makes this building worthy of attention and enforcement of this is a facade (reducing the volume at quietly suspended slabs and the impeccable proportions of facade). Brick walls are washable, one of their respective surfaces have no vertical separeting ranges from glass. Architraves are in concrete plaster in black and they holds whole the walls of the house, and ‘falling lightly’ and separate from the roof walls, like another black plate cut coming house from the ground.
