Summary Summary: 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 colonial architecture. This publication presents his complete oeuvre. Histories of Dutch architecture often pass over the architecture of Dutch architects in the former Dutch East Indies. Wolff Schoemaker and Henri Maclaine Pont were the main architects in Indonesia in the 1920s and 1930s. They determined the architectural landscape and the discussion of it
Notes Translation of the author's proefschrift, Universiteit Utrecht, whose full title is "Op zoek naar de tropenstijl, leven en werk van prof. ir. C.P. Wolff Schoemaker, Indisch architect."
