‘Moments in Architecture’, by Iwan Baan | Arquitectura Viva

On view through 8 September at the ICO Foundation museum is the first major retrospective on the work of Iwan Baan, one of the world’s leading photographers of architecture. ‘Moments in Architecture’ is a traveling show curated by Mea Hoffmann and produced by the Vitra Design Museum, and lands in Madrid as part of the official section of the PHotoESPAÑA 2024 festival.

The exhibition gathers a sampling of all the areas covered by the Dutch photographer (Alkmaar, 1975) since the early 2000s, with shots of building works of renowned contemporary architects – among them Rem Koolhaas, Herzog & de Meuron, Kazuyo Sejima, and Tatiana Bilbao – and iconic images like a darkened Manhattan in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

Baan has traveled the world and explored booming megalopolises on all the continents, documenting the heyday and crises of the real-estate sector, the densification of populations, the evolution of urban fabrics, and personal experiences.
