Pieter Teylers Huis is a project commissioned by Teylers Museum in Haarlem.
The museum is housed in the oldest museum building in the world, built for the purpose of being a museum. The museum is build adjacent to the house of Pieter Teylers.
For this commission Johan Nieuwenhuize follows the process of the renovation of this house, between 2019 and 2021. This results in a large database of detail images showing historical layers and temporary details in the house.
The database is the starting point for a comprehensive artist book designed in collaboration with data scienist Robin van Emden and designer Welmer Keesmaat.
