N2 - The dogmatic nature of the Neoplasticism manifesto initiated a discourse about translating aesthetic ideals from paintings to 3D structures. Piet Mondrian rarely ventured into architectural design, and his unique interior design of ‘Salon de Madame B… à Dresden’ was not executed. We discuss physical constraints and perceptual factors that conflict with Neoplastic ideals. Using physical and virtual models of the ‘Salon’, we demonstrate challenges with perspective projections, and how such distortions could be minimised in a cylinder. The paradoxical percept elicited by a ‘reverspective’ Mondrian-like space, further highlights the essential role of perceptual processes in reaching neoplastic standards of beauty.
