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 Amsteltower (2018) seen between the Leeuwenburg building (left) and the Rembrandttoren (right ).
Leeuwenburg building (1977) architect Piet Zanstra (1905 - 2003) and Peter de Clercq Zubli (1932-2014).
The building is 56 meters, 15 floors. At the time, it was the largest office building in Amsterdam.
The Rembrandttoren (1994) 150 meters high, 35 floors, architect Peter de Clercq Zubli (1932-2014).
The design is partly inspired by the Empire State Building in New York.
The Amstel tower built next to the Amstel station is 103 meters high and has 30 floors, 192 rental apartments and a hotel.
In the entrance of the building a artwork by Ian Kirkpatrick 'The Golden Age' (9.5 x 3.4 meters).
It depicts the Amstel Tower at the crossroads of the past, present and future.
Inspired by Peter Alma's 1939 murals in the Amstel station
