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 2021

The former engineer's residence of the Westergasfabriek was the director's residence. 

In addition to the engineer's residence, the Amsterdam architect Isaac Gosschalk (1838-1907)

designed several buildings on the site. 

The buildings are built in the style of the 16th century Dutch Renaissance. 

Characteristic of this style are the horizontal layers of natural stone between

the masonry and the use of stepped gables. 

The gas factory site has been a cultural park since 2003.
