Dutch ..... Architectuur- en ontwerpstijl die in de jaren 50 van de 20ste eeuw populair werd in de Verenigde Staten, en met name werd toegepast bij koffiehuizen, motels, benzinestations, reclameborden en andere bouwsels langs de weg. De stijl wordt gekenmerkt door krachtige, hoekige vormen en een intensief gebruik van staal, glas en neon; als inspiratiebron dienden het ruimtetijdperk, de sciencefiction en de autowereld. De oorsprong van de term is niet bekend. Er wordt echter gespeculeerd dat hij zou zijn ontleend aan de ontwerpstijl van Googie's Coffee Shop in Los Angeles, Californië.
