johnson wax building

Dutch headquarters of American company S.C. Johnson (formerly Johnson Wax) in Mijdrecht, the Netherlands. The space age building was designed by Dutch architect Maaskant and was finished in 1964. It’s very unusual to come across buildings like this in the Netherlands, especially in a village like Mijdrecht. The monumentality, the grand formal gesture, and the expressive, sculptural shape seem to be quite ‘undutch’.
