Schröder House by Gerrit Rietveld
The famous Schröder House by Gerrit Rietveld was not built in 1917, that is, 100 years ago, thus it is not its centennial. But being that arguably it is the most “De Stijl” house that was built, we feel that it would be appropriate to commemorate it on the occasion of De Stijl’s centennial.

Van Gogh Museum building
This art gallery is dedicated to the works of Vincent van Gogh and his contemporaries. The building is located at the Museum Square in the borough Amsterdam South. It is close to the Stedelijk Museum, the Rijksmuseum, and the Concertgebouw.
The building design was achieved with Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa. The museum’s collection is the largest collection of Van Gogh’s paintings and drawings in the world. The museum is the 2nd most visited museum in the Netherlands and one of the most popular in the world.
The gallery building was renovated in 1998 and 1999 by the Dutch architect Martien van Goor. An exhibition wing by the Japanese contemporary architect Kisho Kurokawa was added. The museum was closed for renovations for six months from late 2012.
