Are holidays and although the Crisis, the excuse of the crisis, deleted, at least momentarily, the obvious, that the countries that have fallen have many interesting people and wanting to make things, as good or better, as in countries where they have not the famous Crisis, we bring a small intervention that celebrates the feast, a matter of times.

The remodelation project on Dalliance House if there is one thing that defines it is the passage of time. Although located in the same place for over 120 years, everything around it has evolved and changed. The house has also undergone major transformations and changes by its inhabitants. Instead of deleting these scars, the creative team paid attention on conservation, in an attempt to remember and relive all life forms and functions that existed within its...

Architecture, Art, Design
The Sonneveld House, built in 1933 in Rotterdam, is one of the best-preserved houses of the Nieuwe Bouwen style. The renowned Rotterdam designer Richard Hutten was invited by Het Nieuwe Instituut to respond to the design of this house museum. This confrontation with current design practice positions Sonneveld House within the contemporary design scene. Hutten’s interventions form part of the revitalisation of the Sonneveld House, in which personal objects and design from the 1930s added to the house lend it more atmosphere and character.

Guest curator.

As guest curator, Richard Hutten respects the original interior while at the same time inserting examples of his own work or making almost invisible alterations to the interior. Hutten: “For me the Sonneveld House is an icon, a highlight of modernism and relevant to this day. My idea is to introduce some...
