Schroeder House, general view
Rietveld was influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright and Hendrik Berlage. Berlage's writings insisted on the primacy of interior space. Walls defining spaces not only had to express the nature of their materials, but their function was not to be hidden by ornament. Rietveld's architecture was also influenced by his association with Mondrian's art, which was based on the rectangle. The architecture which resulted was an enduring style analogous to but not based on ancient Greek of the 5th C BC. The style is known as De Stijl. De Stijl was the name of a periodical published by Mondrian starting in 1914. In it were defined the aims of modern innovators in Dutch art: clarity, certainty and order.
