Photographer Iwan Baan Honored

Read Article

On October 10--the 100th anniversary of legendary photographer Julius Shulman--artist Iwan Baan was honored with the inaugural Julius Shulman Institute Photography Award. Just as Shulman was the choice to capture the works of mid-century-modern architects like Richard Neutra, Rudolph Schindler, and Pierre Koenig, Baan (a young photographer from the Netherlands) blossomed shooting the structures of today's top designers: Herzog & de Meuron, Rem Koolhaus, Thom Mayne, and Sanaa, to name a few. We've been captivated just as much by the buildings Baan has photographed as the images themselves and here present a short roundup of our favorites from the past.

  The pavilion comprised an aluminum canopy (polished to a mirror-like finish) supported by stainless steel columns. Here, Baan was able to capture the architects' intention to have the structure "drift freely between the trees like smoke."  Photo by: Iwan BaanCourtesy of: bank details:

  A few months later, for our October 9, 2009, Friday Finds, senior editor Sarah Rich selected Baan's photographs of the Bilbao Jardin by Diana Balmori of Balmori Associates. "As if Bilbao weren't already rich in amazing architecture by world-class names, the new Bilbao Jardin design by Diana Balmori (of Balmori Associates) has taken it to the next level," Rich wrote. "I'm completely mesmerized by Iwan Baan's photos of the garden."  Photo by: Iwan Baan

  Earlier this year, in June 2010, I wrote about the winners of the 2010 National Design Awards, among them, James Corner, whose work includes New York's High Line. Though there are countless photographs of the elevated railroad-cum-city park, few capture it with such drama as Baan.  Photo by: Iwan BaanCourtesy of: bank details:
