This project was created with the same spirit that America was founded on. Our intentions are to connect everyone in America through the lens of this camera and social networking sites. We can't do this without you. We want to tell your story and show your city or town through photographs of you, and people you know. As we travel around America looking for people and places to shoot you will be able to keep track of where we are going and help us decide where we go next.

That’s all fine if you’re playing music through speakers, but things get a bit difficult if headphones or earbuds are in the action.

The AZL Pension Fund Headquarters is an extension to an existing office building dating from the 1940s, in the center of Heerlen, the Netherlands. The old part of this building was constructed during a wealthy era of coal mining. The extension was completed in 1995 by Wiel Arets Architects, a local architect who operates world wide. WAA chose to use perforated steel plates, slabs of concrete and hints of black next to the old brick walls. On one side, a wide opening in the concrete boosts the buildings character.
