Building Buildings VIII

Edition 5 

Building Buildings VIII is part of the series Building Buildings. It is about the way us humans create and demolish at the same pace. A lot of  architecture is made with the idea not to last forever. With new technologies growing so fast these buildings are often outdated within decades. Building Buildings is an ode to this architecture. By repeating its beauty Jacqueline shows that when we grow out of it, there's always a quality we can continue to build on.

Building Buildings VIII is a digital collage of Hofpoort (Shell Gebouw II) in Rotterdam

In this series the images show the reflections of windows. These reflections are brought together in a new composition to become new architecture.
