This poster presents recent research on the use of stone in 1950s Dutch Modernism. The use of stone in modern architecture has its origin in the 1920s and '30s in the South of the Province of Limburg where the stone was quarried. Influenced by international architecture the use of stone found its way to other parts of the country in the 1950s and '60s. The architectural expression and meaning of traditional stone in modern architecture has not been addressed yet to its full extend. This poster gives some first insights and calls for further systematic research into the use of stone in modern architecture.
