Interior Portraits Vol II: Sonneveld

Nathalia Martinez Saavedra


The Sonneveld House in Rotterdam is one of the supreme achievements of Nieuwe Bouwen, the Dutch branch of the International School of Modernism.  As Modern architecture widely explored the relation between interior and exterior, I approached the Camera Obscura technique in order to stress this relation by visually merging both spaces into one.

The intersection of the 1930’s preserved interiors against the 2014’s contemporary surroundings produces a juxtaposition of two parallel places that talk about different times. This collection aims at overlapping diverse scenarios and producing multiple readings of this iconic modernist house to visualize time passing while altering the perception of space.
