Back issue for magazine - 2G N.39/40 Gerrit Th. Rietveld

2G N.39/40 Gerrit Th. Rietveld Although internationally known for his furniture, for his iconic Schröder House and for his relationship to the members of De Stijl, Gerrit Th. Rietveld developed a prolific career as an architect after his Neo-Plasticist phase in the 1920s. This double issue of 2G. Revista internacional de arquitectura takes another look at Rietveld's domestic built work from his first Neo-Plasticist buildings of the 1920s to his death in 1964. In it we discover a trajectory which, without renouncing the Neo-Plasticist precepts of his early days, gradually takes on a more domestic and everyday cast in direct rapport with his clients. Along with his endeavours as a cabinetmaker, the issue of suburban single-family housing constituted a fundamental mainstay in his trajectory, one in which the everyday is intermingled with spatial exploration. The revisit to this less-known oeuvre of Rietveld's is preceded by essays by Marijke Kuper (editor of this issue), Hans Ibelings and Wim Quist, and culminates in the nexus section with various texts by the architect himself.
