How does architecture relate to 17th century Dutch painting? Architects Ricardo Flores and Eva Prats analyze the painting of Pieter De Hooch to discover housing design trends of the time, a period which marks when everyday life started to be represented in art. This was the starting point for an architecture workshop at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, proposing new architectural designs through examining De Hooch's art. The result is an analysis of Dutch domestic architecture in the 17th century through hand-made plans and models, and their applications to new spatial concepts and projects.
