“During one three-week period recently Iwan Baan touched down in Amsterdam, Mexico City, Miami, New York, Milan, Rome, Tokyo, Medellín and Basel, where he photographed buildings designed by some of the world’s top architects, including Herzog & de Meuron, Rem Koolhaas and Toyo Ito. Along with Steven Holl, Thom Mayne and the Japanese firm Sanaa, they have helped turn Mr. Baan, 34, into almost certainly the most peripatetic architectural photographer in the world as well as one of the most widely published.
