    Rietveld Schroder House (interior), 1924, Gerrit Rietveld, Utrecht, Netherlands

    Schroder Housewas built in 1924 by Dutch architect Gerrit Rietveld for Mrs. Truus Schröder-Schräde in Utrechtr. She commissioned the house to be designed preferably without walls. He sketched the first possible design for the building; Schroder-Schrader was not pleased. She envisioned a house that was free from association and could create a connection between the inside and outside. The house is one of the best known examples of De Stijl-architecture & arguably the only true De Stijl building.
