Netherlands Architecture Institute NAI (1993 - 2013)

(Published on 29 March 2010)

The last retrospective devoted to Van ’t Hoff was at the Van Abbe Museum in Eindhoven and dates back to 1967. The new presentation was prompted by the Kröller-Müller Museum’s purchase of the complete interior of Van ’t Hoff’s study in New Milton in England. Built to his own design, this stark construction allowed him to both shut out the world and to design his own vision of it.
