  5. Opbouw


Founded in 1920



Opbouw is an association for architects and visual artists. Some architects came from De Stijl group. Some members of the Opbouw were inspired by Russian communism, but not everyone agreed and some members thanked them. Architects within Opbouw advocated the New Building. This movement believed that construction should be organized as an industrial process, using rational methods and using industrial materials. Light structures with large windows over small window openings to get as much sunlight and fresh air in as possible. In addition to Opbouw, Amsterdam's De 8 was also inspired by this idea. Opbouw and De 8 started to work together more and more, which eventually led to a magazine called De 8' en Opbouw'.
