Designed by Sybold van Ragesteyn, this 50′s modern gas station in Arnhem reminds me of Ed Ruscha’s Standard Station, Amarillo Texas. The abrupt perspective lines of Ruscha’s painting look so similar to the angles of the facade of Purfina Petrol Station. It’s also really fun to look at the good image search for this building. The results include so artworks inspired by the building, along with some historic shots showing it with different color schemes and uses throughout the years.
