GARAGE WIEMAN


My father was a car mechanic. During my childhood his garage was a big playground to me. It embodied a place of rest and safety. The scent of oil and gas, the sounds of engines and the diversity of working tools. As the years have passed and the garage shut down, I went looking for a place to revive my nostalgia and to explore the current situation.
At Garage Wieman in Amsterdam-Noord the car mechanics are dedicated to their profession. The era of electric cars will drastically change their working methodology. Simultaneously many young start-ups will transform Amsterdam Noord into a trendy metropolis.
How long will their craftmanship persist?
