Welcome Serralves Villa: First Member From Portugal!
The Serralves Villa in Porto is a significant example of Art Deco architecture. It was designed and constructed between 1925 and 1944. Located in one of the highest points of the property, the Villa presides majestically over the Serralves Park and Alvaro Siza’s Serralves Museum (1999). With great decorative rigor and quality materials, the Villa benefited from the intervention of leading figures of the time, such as Marques da Silva, Charles Siclis, Jacques Émile Ruhlmann and René Lalique.
Rietveld-Schröder House Remembers De Stijl
Iconic Houses member the Rietveld Schröder House, located in Utrecht, the Netherlands, was a revolutionary architectural statement when it was unveiled in 1924. Now a listed Unesco World Heritage site, the house forms part of the collection of the Centraal Museum Utrecht. The museum will be marking the De Stijl anniversary with an exhibition devoted to the house as an icon of the movement. Exhibition runs from 4 March to 11 June.
