xavier delory envisions a new de stijl icon with the 'rietveld van doesburg house'
this fictional architectural visualization by xavier delory depicts the amalgamation of gerrit rietveld’s asymmetrical architecture and theo van doesburg’s oblique painted surfaces. delory blends some of the dutch creatives’ most important and best known works: rietveld’s ‘schröder house’ and van doesburg ‘counter-composition’ paintings. a dialogue between the elementary and dynamic structural forms of the schröder house is created through the interruption of straight lines and primary colors from van doesburg’s ‘counter-composition’ series.
delory’s ‘rietveld van doesburg house’ marks the latest chapter in his ‘pilgrimage along modernity’ series, which sees the transformation of 20th century architectural monuments as a subversive homage to the modernist movement. this latest visualization focuses on the de stijl movement, and its founding by theo van doesburg in 1917. the style revolved around a set of formal rules and reduced painting to the elements of horizontal and vertical straight lines, plane surfaces, rectangles, and primary colors. rietveld’s 1924 ‘schröder house’ in utrecht is considered to be a spatial translation of the de stijl principles. through his ‘rietveld van doesburg house, counter-composition’, delory emphasizes de stijl’s versatility in its application to façades, stained glass, furniture, interior design and architecture itself.
