Description:

Hardcover. 136 pages. Dimensions: 12.0in. x 9.6in. x 0.7in.Iwan Baan takes the viewer on a one-year photographic journey around the worldalways on the lookout for ingenious homes in unexpected places and outstanding construction projects. A characteristic of his pictorial language is his engagement with the close relationship between humans and architecture, between social use and the various spatial situations. The catalog features fifty-two photographs from last year accompanied by personal commentaries by the photographer. These are sensitive encounters with everyday and extraordinary places all over the globe that Baan has put together to form an engaged commentary on human living and survival strategies. Among the images is New York magazines magnificent cover photograph of a half blacked-out Manhattan during Hurricane Sandy 2012. Here and elsewhere the boundaries between architecture documentation and the interpretation of social living spaces become blurred. Born in 1975, Dutch photographer Iwan Baan is one of the foremost architectural photographers in the world today, collaborating, for example, with Rem Koolhas, Herzog and de Meuron, Toyo Ito, and Zaha Hadid. He received the 2010 Julius Shulman Institute Photography Award and the 2013 Architizer A Relevance Award presented by Lisa Phillips, director of the New Museum in New York. Baans TED talk, Ingenious Homes in Unexpected Places (given at the TimesCenter, New York City, in 2013), was viewed by eighty-five thousand people around the world in the first twenty-four hours it was posted.
