ARTstor continues to expand its coverage of international architecture with the release of more than 870 images documenting contemporary architecture in the Netherlands and Scandinavia from ART on FILE. In 2009, ARTstor sponsored a campaign for ART on FILE to create new, direct-digital photographs of buildings, built-environment projects, and landscape architecture in a number of cities, including Amsterdam, Netherlands, Copenhagen, Denmark, and Malmo, Sweden. Professional photographers Colleen Chartier and Rob Wilkinson photographed new buildings and recent projects designed by de Architekten Cie, Santiago Calatrava, Erick van Egeraat, Foster & Partners, Grimshaw Architects, Gustafson Porter, Zaha Hadid, Henning Larsen, Steven Holl, Toyo Ito, Lundgaard & Tranberg, MvRdV, Neutelings Riediijk, Jean Nouvel, Renzo Piano Building Workshop, Skidmore Owings & Merrill, Jorn Utzon, Rafael Vinoly, and Wilkinson Eyre, among others.
These new photographs join the approximately 9,600 images by ART on FILE already in the Digital Library, bringing the total to more than 10,000 images. Chartier and Wilkinson have contributed selections from ART on FILE’s remarkable archive of slides and transparencies, which documents contemporary architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, and public art around the world. ARTstor has also sponsored previous campaigns for ART on FILE to create new digital photographs of contemporary architecture in the United States and Europe (Berlin, London, Barcelona, and Madrid). In their most recent campaign, Chartier and Wilkinson focused on the cities of Abu Dhabi and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. These images will be added to the Digital Library in a forthcoming release.
