New in our network: Van Doesburg ‘s studio house!

The Dutch avant-garde artist and founder of De Stijl, Theo van Doesburg (1883-1931), designed a studio house in the late 20s for himself and his wife. He died at the young age of 47, not being able to witness the house to be finished. It is his only architectural creation which has been saved.

Speaking Volumes: Building the Iconic Houses Library

While sorting through his books, Hans Versnel decided to donate his monographs on Villa Tugendhat to us! We hope that you will be inspired to follow his good example during this season of giving. We are keen to develop our library into a real resource for researchers – and you can help.
