Cityscapes exhibiting in De Toren, Overhoeksplein. 
Marcus Koppen Photography‘s CITYSCAPE PROJECT was born of a fascination with the rapid change of urban landscapes in the Megacities as architects and urban planners try to create living spaces in response to an ever-growing demand for shelter. All photos consist of multiple analog format shots thoroughly combined together. The end results are photographs of bright and colorful cityscapes that display an amazing level of detail.
 
de Toren is open on Friday til Sunday 11:00am til until the last person leaves… so 6:00am, unless the weather is amazing so then it’ll open up extra.  There’s a special exhibition going on in the toilets at the same time (!) the X-rated ladyboy project ‘The Girl Got Balls ‘. FREE!! More info here

3D Print Canal House
“The 3D Print Canal House researches how 3D printing techniques can offer solutions to housing questions worldwide.”

DUS Architects had a vision, one of not being bound by materials or the usual thinking around house structures. They then set out to prove their philosophy by designing a house that can be assembled piece by printed piece, a little like the picture above shows in miniature, on a 3D printer. With a proper (close-up) look at the 3D Print Canal House it soon becomes apparent what a massive project this is for them, and not just the scale of printing a full size house—this project will take them a further three years to finish and the pieces they’re printing are life-sized.

Open Monday to Fridays 11am-5pm, plus first weekends of the month 11am-5pm, Badhuiskade 11, Amsterdam Noord. More info here
