Ayuntamiento de Hilversum.
Willem Marinus Dudok (6 dejulio de 1884, Ámsterdam - 6 de abril de 1974, Hilversum) fue un arquitecto neerlandés.
Dudok se convirtió en 1928 en arquitecto municipal de la ciudad de Hilversum, donde construyó barrios enteros y docenas de edificios públicos. El más conocido de ellos es el ayuntamiento (stadhuis), terminado en 1931. Se había formado en el estilo de la escuela de Ámsterdam, pero ciertas características deeste edificio, como la asimetría, la rotundidez geométrica, o los finos voladizos, estaban claramente inspiradas en la arquitectura de Frank Lloyd Wright, muy en boga por la publicación de su obra en los Países Bajos. Durante muchos años, hasta la década de los años 1960, siguió construyendo en esta ciudad, llegando a tener fama mundial. Fue reconocido con la Medalla de Oro del RIBA en 1935 y la delAIA en 1955.

Hilversum City Hall


One of several Hilversum schools designed by Dudok
Dudok becameCity Architect for the town of Hilversum in 1928 and designed and built about 75 houses, public buildings and entire neighborhoods there, best known for the brick Hilversum City Hall (Raadhuis), completed in 1931. Not only did he design the building, but also the interior including the carpets, furniture and even the mayor's meeting hammer.
[edit] Development
Dudok's early style grew out of theAmsterdam School but the dramatic massing, asymmetry, the overhanging eaves and other elements of his landmark City Hall were clearly influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright and the Chicago Prairie School. Dudok continued to produce progressive, Dutch modernist structures in Hilversum for decades, through the 1960s, and had international influence. He received the RIBA Gold Medal in 1935 and the AIA GoldMedal in 1955. He also designed buildings in Paris, the Collège néerlandais in the Cité Universitaire, a cultural centre in Baghdad and a cinema in Calcutta.
