Amsterdam – Zuidas ( South Axis ) & Houthaven ( old wood harbour )

Since we left the crisis behind, a lot of noticeable things are happening in Amsterdam regarding modern architecture. Specially at the Zuidas ( South Axis ) in Amsterdam and at the Houthaven ( the old wood harbour) are a lot of interesting architectural developments to be seen

Budapest

Recently I had the opportunity to photograph some architecture in Budapest and though I am a big fan of modern architecture, I must admit I was not only charmed and impressed by the Whale form the Dutch architect Kas Oosterhuis, but also from the beauty of the Parliament Building! This building was build by Imre Steindl, who won an architectural competition to design and build it in 1885 and while he designed it in a Neo-gothic/Gothic Revival style best recognised in its symmetrical façade, he also added a central dome clearly inspired by Renaissance Revival architecture. Tragically, Steindl went blind before the building was finished in 1904 and passed away two years before then. He would never lay eyes upon the completion of his most elegant work.

Vienna

In between two jobs I had the opportunity to do some architectural photography in Vienna. With my homemade guide from Mimoa in one hand and the wallpaper  City Guide  Vienna app from Phaidon in the other, we limit ourselves to a few areas, like the WU, the Viertel Zwei, Gasometer City and the International Centre Vienna.
