Comments Off on The Hague has been colorfully converted into the ‘World’s Largest Mondrian’

Richard Meier ‘s architecture is widely recognized for its bold geometric shapes and stark white exteriors . However, a new initiative in Holland has just added a world of color to the Meier-designed City Hall of the Hague, converting it into the “world’s largest Modrian painting”. The act, which would normally be considered an act of architectural travesty, is actually part of the Mondrian to Dutch Design campaign, a year-long centennial celebration to honor the Dutch art movement, De Stijl. https://vimeo.com/202903231 The year-long celebration of the De Stijl movement, which originated in Leiden in 1917, will be held throughout Holland this year. The art style involved the use of abstract geometric forms and primary colors, and Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian quickly became the face of the movement and group.

The “Mondrianization” adaptation was carried out by Madje Vollaers and Pascal Zwart, from the Rotterdam-based design studio, Studio Vollaerszwart , who will be giving the same colorful treatment to other buildings throughout the city. Art lovers will also be able to enjoy a year-long calendar of events that will continue to shine the light on the impact of the De Stijl movement. + Modrian to Dutch Via Archdaily Images via The Hague
