Schroder House!!!

Since our first semester freshman year, we learned about the Schroder House. We learned about the impact it made on architecture with the abstract planes, projecting roofs, and projecting balconies. Therefore, during our study trip to the Netherlands, we made it a necessity to make a day trip to Utrecht to see the Schroder House. When Will and I walked around the corner and finally saw it, we could not believe it. We have studied it so much and finally we were seeing it in person. It was amazing. That reminded me of one thing I have learned a lot about this trip to Europe. Seeing these architectural pieces and pieces of artwork on a sheet of paper does not even compare to seeing it in person.
