Stadhuis Deventer

Het is alweer even geleden dat ik wat op mijn blog plaatste. Het is ook al een tijd geleden dat ik het nieuwe stadhuis van Deventer tijdens een rondleiding mocht bewonderen en tussendoor deze foto's maakte (..)

NMM

A while ago I visited the NMM (National Military Museum/ Nationaal Militair Museum, Soesterberg). It's a newly built museum with a lot of old military equipment and quite a few airplanes hanging from the ceiling. A huge building with a construction that has to carry a lot of weight, but it feels very open and light and it's really very beautiful.

Schatkamer van Zuid, Apeldoorn

It's been a while since I posted anything; again, I had a few very hectic months with several very different projects all running at the same time.

So, I'll post a few blogs to show you what I've been up to, like this one with two of the photos I made for Ons Huis Apeldoorn of one of their newly built residential areas: 'De Schatkamer van Zuid'. (..)

Abel

A little while ago we went to Assen. We parked near this building (apparently it's called the Abel Tasman toren- toren means tower). I have a soft spot for huge, sober/ minimalistic structures so it immediately caught my attention.

So far I've been able to find out it was built in 1977 and it was the tallest building in Assen for a while, until the Regiopolitie Drenthe building surpassed it apparently. Unfortunately I have no idea who the original architect was. (if anyone does, feel free to leave me a note)

Museum Küppersmühle, Duisburg

A while ago we visited Museum Küppersmühle in Duisburg (Germany). Art works like 'Traum des Künstlers' by Markus Lüpertz and the 'Sternenlager' works by Anselm Kiefer were definitely worth the visit, as was the building itself with the modern architectural addition by Herzog & De Meuron.

The main entrance and the staircase from the outside.

I took a few pictures of the spectacular staircase from the inside as well.

To be honest, it's not enough to look at the pictures (then again- is it ever?). This is one of those interiors you'll want to experience yourself- you just have to see and feel the material that was used up close and personal.

The area itself, the inland port, is beautiful as well. We'll definitely want to visit there again.

2013-v-ardini-noorderlicht-suikerfabriek.jpg

A yearly tradition: visiting Noorderlicht, the Dutch photo exhibition in either Groningen or Friesland. This year the exhibition took place in the old Suikerfabriek (sugar factory) in Groningen, a beautiful place (but rather cold, so learn from my mistake and don't leave your coat in the car just because it's nice and warm outside). The exhibition on the first floor, 'To have and have not' had the most impressive works. For me, Kadir van Loohuizen, Christian Kryl, Francisco Reina, Xiaoxiao Xu, and Kennardphilipps stood out most.

 

rondeel 'goud in handen'

For the exhibition 'Goud in handen' ('goud' means 'gold', 'handen' means 'hands') at Architecture Centre Rondeel (Deventer) I made a small series of photos of historic buildings with renovated shop exteriors.
