On Tuesday 15 October, the State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg will open Russia’s first exhibition on Dutch postwar architecture. Through 200 items from the collection of The New Institute in Rotterdam, including photographs, drawings and models, Architecture the Dutch Way, 1945–2000 illustrates how the Netherlands reshaped itself after the Second World War. Over the decades, the ideal of communality made way for more diversity, reflecting society’s increasing individualisation. Postwar Dutch architecture and city planning saw society as something that could be engineered and sought to design for “the common man”. The exhibition highlights these tendencies and reveals similarities and differences between Dutch and Russian architecture.
