Mr Monkey stood outside the Sonneveldhuis, designed for the Sonneveld family in the early thirties by the firm Brinkman and Van der Vlugt who favoured the Nieuwe Bouwen school of functionalist architecture. Mr Monkey had made sure his humans had bought entry tickets at the NAI. He went in through the front door, chuckled quietly while his humans put covers over their shoes, then started his tour by looking at the ground floor studio where the two Sonneveld daughters did their homework.
