‘The Miami sun’ is a competition entry for a landmark proposal at the bayfront park in Miami conceived by VisionDivision. The design is meant to stand as a monument, symbolizing the good life experienced in the beach side city, while also enriching and counter balancing the existing green space and its tropical landscaping. The thin, half sphere-shaped structure, is projected to function as a hotel, with a casino on the lower floors, and an observation decks on the upper levels.
Kitchen Portraits - photos by Erik Klein Wolterink.
“Kitchen Portraits started as an attempt to look at the multicultural nature of Amsterdam and has since been turned into a book. For the project, Wolterink wanted to consider the contents of kitchens of homes from families who’d come to Amsterdam from other places, ‘to use the kitchen as a metaphor for a complex multicultural reality.’ He photographed each cabinet and drawer, and then created a composite image of the kitchen which preserves the detail of every space. It’s fascinating and revealing to study this series.”
