Fascination with architecture
Valentijn Carbo is fascinated by architecture, because of the stories that each environment contains. “Just like any building you are in. A historic building was made by someone and people lived there. You look at a place very differently if you know something about its history.”
"I hope that it is also recognizable to many people: that the past is not only about the past, but is also about the present.”
