Photographer's Note

The chairs of the meeting and conference hall of the Rotterdam Kunsthal. The Kunsthal (1992) is a museum designed by OMA/Rem Koolhaas. It has 5 exhibition spaces totaling 3300 m2 and has no own art collection –it hosts temporary exhibitions which are often (co-)produced by the KunstHal itself.

Koolhaas' work can be classified as deconstructionist. He frequently uses bold and asymmetric forms, spaces and untreated surfaces, like concrete and corrugated plastics. (check out the workshop with the entrance of the building for this). It confirms his architect's adagio “no time, no money, no detail". So the colourful, harmonious and repetitive arrangements of the chairs, in a certain way is a surprise.

Name of this capture and the Soundtrack to enjoy while lookin' at it is Canto Ostinato. One of my fav pieces of sequential 'contemporary-classical' music. It was written for the piano by Simeon ten Holt.
The version here is a short an adapted (Oscar Alblas) version, performed on marimba and vibraphone.
