The closer to a building, the clearer the details.
But then you miss the contours. PANURBANA shows both.

I collect buildings. I do this by taking photos of a building from a certain perspective.
I glue these photos together like a collage so that a new building is created: a Panurbana.
At the moment I am collecting buildings in Amsterdam to make an atlas of them.

In Panurbana's panoramic photos, I explore time, space and different types of perspectives within the photo.

Every week a new collage of a building or construction that has been photographed somewhere in the world appears on social media (Facebook, instagram, flickr and youtube)

Amsterdam 2022

The business park of the central market halls was opened in 1934.
Food was traded here to supply catering establishments and supermarkets in the city.
There were several warehouses on the site around the central market hall, as well as docks where the goods were brought in by boat.
The entire site was closed and only accessible for traders.
After 80 years, the area of the market halls is divided into two parts.
The companies will be moved to the north side of the site and the monumental market hall will be restored.
The market hall will accommodate various (sustainable, small) companies and cultural events.
South of the market hall, 1700 residential units will be built.
The old market canteen (panurbana 100) and the adjacent buildings will be demolished.
