we built this city on rock and roll

Client: Van Eesteren Museum, Amsterdam

Project: Photo compilation and design for temporary exhibition

“We built this city on Rock and roll” shows photographs of the music heroes of the 60/70s shot by Gijsbert Hanekroot, a pioneer of rock music photography.

A black stage creates an extra floor in the museum, offering a whole new perspective on the beautiful pavilion. Climbing up the stairway to heaven, the visitors find themselves eye to eye with David Bowie, Blondie, The Who, Nina Hagen and many more. As the stage is made of rented scaffolding material and the black fabric is being re-used, our design scores high on sustainability.
