"It is very impressive and looks quite unique....."  Kengo Kuma about world-famous social housing complex "Het Schip" designed by architect Michel de Klerk.

World-renowned Kengo Kuma regards Bruno Taut as his greatest inspiration. The beautiful utilitarian objects Bruno Taut made from natural materials were, and still are, a great source of inspiration for the then and current generation of top Japanese architects. From 6 March to 18 October 2020, Museum Het Schip presents the exhibition ‘Bruno Taut: Beyond Fantasy’.
