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 2020

The Noorderkerk is a Protestant church built between 1620 and 1623. 

Designed by Hendrick de Keyser (1565-1621), who also designed the Zuider and Westerkerk. 

After the death of Hendrickde Keyser, the church was finished by his son Pieter de Keyzer (1595-1676).

The plan of the church consists of a Greek cross, two arms 

of equal length in combination with an octagon. 

The pulpit is in the middle so that the pastor is in the center of the churchgoers. 

The church does not have a large tower but a small crossing tower, made 

by the city carpenter Hendrik Jacobsz Staets (1558-1630) and the city mason 

Cornelis Danckerts de Ry (1561-1634). 

A number of service houses have been built next to the church.
