Please join us for a conversation with architectural photographer Iwan Baan. Baan’s work is included in the exhibition Architecture of Independence – African Modernism, currently on view at the Center for Architecture.
Iwan Baan’s photographic investigations record the ways in which individuals, communities and societies create and interact within their built environments. Commissioned by Rem Koolhaas, Herzog & de Meuron, Zaha Hadid, Toyo Ito and SANAA to showcase their designs, his documentary work has been published in The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times and in books including Brasilia & Chandigarh: Living with Modernity (Lars Müller, 2010) and Torre David: Informal Vertical Communities (Lars Müller, 2012).
