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 Telegraaf building on the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal was designed by
Jan Frederik Staal (1879-1940) (also Panurbana 60) and Gerard Langhout (1879-1962).
The newspaper's editorial and printing works were located in the building.
At the top of the tower, 45 meters high, there are 4 bronze statues of
newspaper sellers, they are the newsboys or the town criers.
The statues were made by sculptor Hildo Krop (1884-1970).
After the 2nd World War, the Telegraaf issued a 30-year ban on pro-German reporting.
After four years, the ban was lifted and De Telegraaf was allowed to appear again.
In 1974 De Telegraaf moved to the western harbor area
and the statues were placed in the hall of the new building.
From 1985 to 2017, the Kasbank was located in the old newspaper building,
nowadays ‘Guerrilla’ the largest game developer in the Netherlands.
