Honorable Mention / 2021 / Architecture / Buildings


Amsteldok is a large office building on Amsteldijk and Trompenburgstraat in the South of Amsterdam. It was designed by the Rotterdam based architect Huig Aart Maaskant. Until 2019 the building was called Rivierstaete.

Rivierstaete was built between 1967 and 1973 and used to be the largest office building in Europe at a cost of 40,000,000 guilders. A metal sculpture by André Volten was placed in the Trompenburgstraat in 1972 during the construction period. The building had eight floors in staggered layers.

My photography focusses mainly on (fine art) Architecture where I feel like I'm having a look through the eyes of the architect. I like to shoot the smallest abstract details to the complete buildings to tell the complete story in all it's shapes and forms.
