Buildings in The Hague get a Mondriaan makeover

By

Mondriaan

For the centennial of Dutch art movement De Stijl of which Piet Mondriaan (or Mondrian) was a member of, the city of The Hague has had city hall done up as a Mondriaan painting, with characteristic blue, red and yellow squares and bold black lines.

The project was made using large, adhesive, monochrome rectangles, applied one by one by Rotterdam-based design firm Studio Vollaerszwart, making the building look like a De Stijl-type artwork. Other buildings in The Hague will follow suit, include pontoons in the Hofvijver, a pond in the city the centre, and the Mauritshuis museum.
