Rostock MV Cityscape

Istanbul, Cologne, Amsterdam and more…

In august last year we started a new side project which our regular readers surely have stumbled upon already. To cover more cities in our archive we set out to feature 101 different european cities in a streetline perspective in about as many weeks. While we have photographed about 200 european cities already, a much smaller number has actually been published so far. So this project will hopefully shed lights not only onto the usual suspects, but on some surprising cities as well. Currently we have counted up to No. 18, here however we will summarize the first 15. So below you’ll find a run-down from Plzen via Moscow and Amsterdam through Düsseldorf and Strasbourg into the cozy Zwickau.

Using linear cityscapes we show historic cities in unknown perspectives. Presenting several cities from different parts of europe offers opportunities for comparison. Which architectural traditions are obvious, which happened in different places or remained unique to their region? What effect have time and society had on their cities architecture?

Click the images to land in every cities blog entry covering basic facts, some history, eventually more image material and backgrounds. To find out more about the project read the introduction.
