It was a monthly publication aimed at architects and interior designers. Published by Amsterdam publisher Hooge Brug (1918–1923) and then by Santpoort publisher C.A. Mees (1924–1931). "It was a mouthpiece for the architect association Architectura et Amicitia. (Architecture and Friendship). Its primary editor was the architect Hendricus Theodorus Wijdeveld. Wendingen initially was an important platform for Dutch expressionism, also known as the Amsterdam School, and later endorsed the New Objectivity."

First bound together and issued overseas in 1925, Horizon Press reissued it with additional material in 1965. Includes an introduction by Wijdeveld and a new one by Olgivanna Lloyd Wright.
