Hein Salomonson (1910-1994) was one of the second-generation architects of the ‘Nieuwe Bouwen’ style, the Dutch branch of the International School of Modernism. As editor of Goed Wonen magazine, he helped shape modern living in the Netherlands in the 1950s and 60s.
Salomonson had a sense of aesthetics and an eye for detail, material and shape. He drew inspiration from the work of Le Corbusier, Alvar Aalto and Gerrit Rietveld, and regularly worked with Alexander Bodon and garden architect Mien Ruys.
Being first scholared in and inspired by the Amsterdamse School movement Salomonsons work shifted gradually to the International Style movement. In 1929 Salomonson moved to Vienna where he studied under the leadership of international acclaimed architect Josef Hoffman. In 1933 Hein Salomonson moved to Paris and followed an internship at the office of Le Corbusier.
