De Stijl
De Stijl, or The Style, is an art and
design movement founded in Holland
by painters and architects around
1917.
The movement strives to express
universal concepts through
elimination, reduction, abstraction,
simplification, and a dynamic
asymmetrical balance of
rectangles, planes, verticals,
horizontals, the primary colours,
and black, white, and gray.

Definition

De Stijl

The De Stijl also known as


neoplasticism, was one of several
art and design movements that
responded to the chaotic trauma
of World War I with a return to
order.
De Stijl stands out because its
aspirations were as social as they
were aesthetic.

Definition

De Stijl

Designers formulate a new


language and vocabulary for
architecture.
To do this, they take the
traditional house apart, analyze it
like an object, abstract it to
eliminate traditional references,
and then reassemble it in a new
way.
The new form emphasizes the
cube. It is not a solid box, but
instead opens up from outside to
inside with solid and void
relationships established through
flat planes.

Definition

De Stijl
Flat roof, asymmetry, geometric
forms, white or gray walls with
details highlighted by primary
colors.
Houses for individuals are the
most important.
Compositions generally
emphasize the separation of
planes, the application of primary
colours, and the spatial
relationship of solids to voids.

Architectural characteristics

De Stijl
Rectangular shapes define the
geometric repetition of windows,
doors, and blocks of color.
Window sizes vary on an
individual building from large to
small. They may be arranged in
patterns or one unit on a large wall.
Flat roofs are typical, and
distinctly different from other
structures.

The fact of simplifying things to pure abstraction of
little squares is such a power full idea that even the
newest things of our days uses it as a main reference.

The example of Windows logo still preserve


the dichotomy between horizontal and vertical
lines and diagonal composition, which was a
relevant discussing issue in De Stijl
participants.
