VISIT THE VAN ZESSEN HOUSE
The Van Zessen House was built at the end of 1923. It can be visited by appointment only. The design of the Van Zessen House, situated in the town of Alblasserdam, was pivotal in shaping the ideas of the artistic movement known as De Stijl. Urban planner Cornelis van Eesteren (1897-1988) and artist and poet Theo van Doesburg (1883-1931) developed the design for the house together, in Paris, where they were working on an exhibition about De Stijl in the summer of 1923. The exhibition was to mark a pinnacle in the development of modern art and architecture.
