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 Nassaukerk is a Protestant church in the Staatsliedenbuurt. 

Built in 1926 after a competition won by the architect H.G. Krijgsman (1881-1941). 

The design had to harmonize with the existing housing block and be built 

on the last available building plot. 

At the rear of the church, the district classrooms and 

the integrated housing part of the building. 

The church is square and built in the Amsterdam school style. 

The copper-covered tower is 25 meters high and the clock donated 

by the Amsterdam city council. 

The church can accommodate approximately 900 people and

is richly decorated for a protestant church.
