For the book BANK, Hans Wilschut photographed the creation of a young Eindhoven icon: the new Rabobank office, a structure designed by the renowned architectural firm UNStudios. For these photos, Wilschut climbed to the heights, settled into a construction crane and initially focused on the impressive emptiness below him. Abstract photos of a deserted sand plain, fertile ground for concrete. In the period that followed, the photographer would build a unique relationship with his subject. He was there as the floor plan slowly took shape, recorded the growth spurts and was finally able to almost touch the structure from the crane. Through the eyes of Hans Wilschut, we see the conception, gestation period and birth of a unique building.
