The purpose of this paper is to discriminate between the architectural works carried out by members of the De Stijl group -or those of its orbit- those that connect with Mondrian's elaborate theoretical discourse, which is not limited to painting, but reaches the rest of the plastic arts, within which architecture occupies a very precise position.

If we want to trace the possible influence of Mondrian on architecture, it cannot be limited to the search for more or less happy formal parallels. Our interest is going to focus on searching in modern architecture (stijlian and its surroundings) examples in which we can find fundamental parallels between certain buildings and Mondrian's theory of the arts.

To find these parallelisms, it is necessary to previously define the characteristics that said architecture should have.

The work is structured in three parts.

In the first part we verified the very different ideas of architecture that the different members of the De Stijl group had and, therefore, the impossibility of speaking, in a generic way, of a Stijlian architecture.

In the second part of the work we list the characteristics that the architecture derived from Mondrian's discourse should have, extracted from his theoretical texts and his graphic work.

In the third, and last, part of the work we limit ourselves to analyzing the different architectures that to date have been classified as neoplastic under the prism of the characteristics that we deduced in the second part, in order to determine if there is any type of architecture that can be linked with Mondrian's discourse.
