Dutch Houses

In Academic, Sunday, June 07, 2015

The exhibition project „Dutch Houses“ shows a selection of model projects of Dutch residential and pavilion architecture of the 20th and 21st century. Starting from the iconic works of Gerrit Rietveld and J.J.P. Oud, and leading to contemporary architecture by Rem Koolhaas, Christian Rapp, and VMX, the exhibition shows a wide range of projects and the development of residential and pavilion architecture by Architects in the Netherlands.

Dutch housing architecture has played a pivotal role in the development of modern architecture in the 20th century. The design ideas originating from the Netherlands continue to inspire students of architecture and practitioners around the world, often in very different frameworks of physical, social, and environmental context.

The exhibition “Dutch Houses” is the result of a student research project in the Theory of Architecture 1 course. It consisted of a total of 17 projects, displayed as models, booklets, and posters. It was on show in the Netherlands-Flemish Institute in Cairo (NVIC), 1 Dr. Mouhmoud Azmi st., Zamalek, from 7 May to 7 June. The opening lecture was held by Architect Christian Rapp, Amsterdam/ Berlin. A lecture and film series complemented the show.
