One of the best ways to understand a work of architecture is to get some perspective and see it from above. As rising architectural photographer Iwan Baan says, “It’s very important to give the larger overview and try to get some distance from the architecture. That really tells you where it is and that it’s not just a building that could be anywhere.”

One of our project managers came across a local aerial photographer on instagram who uses a computer controlled drone helicopter to capture some of the great buildings in Kansas City. Many of these feature the fabrication and metalwork of Zahner.

We’ve featured some of the best below with permission from the photographer:
