Charles Prosper Wolff Schoemaker (1882-1949) is the Frank Lloyd Wright of Indonesia. Between 1910 and 1940 he designed numerous buildings on Java, including Villa Isola and Hotel Preanger in Bandung, which are among the absolute highlights of modern architecture in the first half of the twentieth century. Histories of Dutch architecture often pass over the architecture of Dutch architects in the former Dutch East Indies. Wolff Schoemaker was one of the main architects in Indonesia in the 1920s and 1930s, Soekarno's lecturer.

This exhibition is being organised in the framework of the booklaunch of 'Tropical Modernity, Life and work of C.P. Wolff Schoemaker by Jan van Dullemen.
