Like the work of Wijdeveld, the exhibition has a theatrical design: with the use of drawings, light, film and sound, a cosmic stage-setting was created in which some hundred beautiful drawings by Wijdeveld hover like stars around a central focal point. On the inside of this, a film animation is projected, depicting a journey through the mind of Wijdeveld, giving a glimpse into his ideas and concepts.

Architect Hendrik Wijdeveld (1885-1987) is considered to be the greatest visionary from Dutch architectural history. Wijdeveld saw the world as one great theatre in which he could stage his dreams. He created a visual spectacle as a contrast to the uninspiring, scientific, modernist urban architecture.
