I can’t think of a better way to kick off a new year of Project of the Weeks than with our friend, the great Andy Macpherson. Today, we’re traveling to sunny Brisbane, Australia to check out Andy’s photographs of Prospect Terrace. Prospect Terrace is a gorgeous project worked on by architect The Artificial, developer Zephyr Industries, and landscape architect LARC Collective.
With the blanket of snow, color palette, and the soft warm glow emanating out of Architectural Resources’s House In The Woods, I had originally thought that my new friend Kim Smith’s photographs would make a particularly cozy and holiday-ish Project of the Week. But actually, as she told me about this shoot and sent the entirety of the project over, it became so much more than that.
This week’s featured project comes to us from Sweden and showcases a lovely piece of civic architecture designed by the architects at Tengbom. This small scale project in Helsingborg — the Southern Entrance of the Helsingborg Central rail station (Knutpunkten) — is a prime example of how aesthetic minimalism can still pack big functionality in architecture.
From my time spent pouring over various architecture and architecture photography throughout the world (wide web), I’ve noticed that Ukraine has some of the most interesting, rich with mood, and just downright cool projects, especially in the restaurant sector.
One of my new personal favorite Ukraninan photographers is Andriy Bezuglov, who has shared this beautiful project with us.
Today’s featured project takes us to Quezon City, Philippines where we’ll be checking out a home named Viewpoint House, designed by Jim Caumeron Design. This contemporary beauty was documented by Manila, Philippines based architectural photographer Bien Alvarez. I think you’ll agree that Bien’s photographs highlight the shapely design of this home while showing off the intricacies found within this space.
Close your eyes and think far back. Back before Covid ruined your travel plans. Now go even further back, before Instagram let you geotag your location — heck, even before Instagram itself. Think back to a time when phone cameras were terrible and you had to ration your texts and emails.
This week’s featured project is a beauty out of New Zealand by photographer Sam Hartnett. Sam specializes in architecture photography and art documentation, and you’ll notice quickly that he crafts gorgeously composed images that have dramatic and directional light. He is a master of portraying the mood of the homes he photographs, and this project — Cowes Bay House — by Cheshire Architects’ on Waiheke Island is no exception.
This project is a perfect example of how the time of day and lighting conditions affect both the mood of your photograph and the appearance of the architecture itself.
The Bridge, Reconstructed is a series by Michael Yuan, a Canadian self-driving car software designer living in San Fransisco, who spends his free hours befriending security guards to photographing the lesser appreciated parts of The Golden Gate Bridge.
What I love about this project is that it boils architecture photography down to its simplest and most pure elements — light and form.
After a Summer hiatus, the BAAM podcast is back with an extraordinary episode featuring one of my favorite photographers, Simon Devitt. BAAM hosts Barry MacKenzie and Andy Macpherson include a particular treat at the beginning of the episode, which is an incredibly insightful introduction by one of Simon’s clients, architect Paul Owen of Owen Architecture.
The Vistula is the longest river in Poland, and today we’re taking you on a little adventure there to check out a gorgeous cabin designed by Kama Czudowska. Warsaw based photographer Nate Cook was invited to stay at the Vistula Cabin, getting to document it throughout varying lighting conditions with little rush on his compositions.
If you’ve ever paged through Dwell or looked at a Herman Miller catalog, you’re already familiar with the work of New York based photographer Pippa Drummond. Pippa’s work is riddled with thoughtful compositions and post-processed in a way that lets the spaces speak for themselves.
Pippa’s photographs of E-Type House by RTA Studio are some of my particular favorites.
I was perusing Instagram when I came upon a beautiful mid-century residential project photographed by California based architectural photographer Chip Allen. When I hopped over to his website, I learned that he has photographed some incredibly cool — and seemingly odd — civic architecture projects.
Here on America’s East Coast, Fall weather is starting to creep in and I am officially looking forward to snow. If you’re hankering for the same cozy winter feel as me, I’ve got the perfect project for you to check out. Architectural photographer Maxime Brouillet was kind enough to share his beautiful photographs of Cabine A by one of my favorite Canadian architects, Bourgeois/Lechasseur.
If you love punchy colors, dark and moody interiors, and showcasing the utilization of space, today’s Project of the Week is for you! Today we’re checking out the Montreal bar Minéral by Blanchette Architectes. While the sun is in the sky, Minéral is a beautiful wine bar. Once night rolls around, it transitions into a club, where the darkness is cut by bold-hued LEDs.
Today we’re taking a little trip to the Netherlands with the ever so wonderful Amsterdam based photographer Peter Tijhuis. Peter will be walking us through his shoot of The Hietland designed by La-Di-Da Architects who are based out of The Hague Area of the Netherlands. Peter has so much great insight for us, I’ll just let him take it away!
Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects has always been esteemed for their mammoth landmarks. All around the globe, their colossal beauties stretch into the sky. One of their particular designs that I love — The Salesforce Tower —stands 1,070 feet tall in downtown San Francisco. Who better to capture this sleek and sexy skyscraper than an architectural photographer who also calls San Francisco home, Jason O’Rear.
Peter Dixie is a wonderful architectural and landscape photographer who calls Shanghai home, and operates under the name LOTAN Studio. This week we are exploring his photographs of The Zentral Kitchen by Lukstudio.
The Zentral Kitchen is the first location for Shikaku — which strives to lessen the environmental impact of dining and food delivery.
The guys at Roehner + Ryan are much admired around here, not just because their photographs are off the wall gorgeous, but because they are such bulldogs for the architectural photography industry. Jason and Dan are great advocates for proper pricing, sharing knowledge, and lifting our little community.
