10/18/23: What’s New, Berlin? • The Grand Tourist

of photography, if you know anything about architecture, then one name will come up again and again. And for many, many cutting edge architects, there’s only one name they trust to capture official photos after laboring on a project for years: Iwan Baan. Due to his close working relationships with nearly every top architect—Rem Koolhaas, Sou Fujimoto, to name a few—he gets the shots others dream of, pairing unparalleled access with incredible angles taken by helicopter, or simply captures everyday moments of construction workers and the public interacting with architecture. His first museum retrospective, “Iwan Baan: Moments in Architecture,” at the Vitra Design Museum in Germany, just a short drive from Basel, Switzerland, will open tomorrow until early March, and will be accompanied by a 600-page book on his oeuvre. design-museum.de
