Simon Devitt makes it hard not to be romantic about architecture…and art…and really, the world.
He speaks less like someone telling his process, and more like a man speaking poetry — divulging a riddle that is the secret to life itself.
In a way, it is.
Peter Marko’s latest project is simply amazing. The shoot spanned two days on location but took months in the making because of permitting, weather, and of course, Covid related lockdowns. Armed with three cameras, a slider, a gimbal, a drone, zero assistants, and no brief from the client, Peter crafted this beautiful film of TERROIR’S Penguin Parade Visitor Center.
Outside of Melbourne in the Yarra Valley sits an extraordinary venue that does it all. The sprawling 400 hectares of TarraWarra consists of two entities, the TarraWarra Museum of Art, and the TarraWarra Estate — consisting of a winery, restaurant, and cellar door.
Today’s featured project takes us to Moscow, Russia where we’ll be checking out VOX Architects‘ World Class Alekseevskaya. World Class has some…ahem…world class photographs by architectural photographer Sergey Ananiev.
Sergey’s images all sport an ultra-clean and tidy look while still maintaining a sense of realism as mood.
When I see Dennis Radermacher of Lightforge Photography‘s name pop up in my notifications, I know it’s going to be a great day. Dennis — an architectural photographer based in Christchurch, NZ — is usually sending the APA crew his latest and greatest 3D printed creations.
This week’s featured project is a real beauty by Seattle-based architectural photographer Rafael Soldi. We’ll be checking out his dreamy photographs of Beach Drive by Revolve Development. Rafael has been kind enough to share so much about his process and this lovely shoot, and I’m excited to share his intel and work with you all.
In an unassuming late-modernist building in Saint John’s Wood near the legendary Abbey Road crossing, sits Maido Sushi. Once an old post office, this architectural gem was given quite the facelift by Child Studio. Careful to preserve the original modernist charm, but introduce “a subtle blend of European and Japanese design influences” to the interior, Child Studio crafted a perfectly balanced space.
Today’s top-notch POTW is a parking garage. Yep…a parking garage. This story is full of drama, with stray bullets delaying the shoot date and Garey and his assistant hauling gear all over the streets of Atlanta!
That’s right, today we are checking out the gorgeous work of Georiga-based architectural photographer Garey Gomez.
This week’s featured project takes us to a small German village with photographer Paulina Ojeda. Paulina’s work sports a very natural and unfussy style, giving off a solid sense of place that works perfectly for the greenhouse-inspired “Merz Haus,” by architect Otto Merz.
We’re back with the Arizona-based super duo Roehner + Ryan for this week’s featured project! Today we are taking a look at their ultra clean, ultra sexy, ultra gorgeous photographs of NVK Design’s Osborn Residence.
Jason Roehner shares that Osborn Residence came about when “the owner bought an older ranch style home to tear down.
Welcome back to another rad Project of the Week by Australian architectural photographer Tom Blachford! If, like me, you also drooled over the series Midnight Modern where he photographed Palm Spring’s finest by the light of the full moon, you can expect more nighttime shenanigans from Tom’s second personal project Nihon Noir.
I love the expansive scope of what architecture photography can be. Garett Buell of StudioBuell‘s work is a prime example. Some days he’s in Nashville shooting “Gilly Huts,” other’s he photographing penthouses downtown, but today Garett is taking us on a fun departure from sprawling mod mansions and skyscrapers to a snowy Amish apple orchard in Pennsylvania.
Buckle up! Today’s Project of the Week takes us to Querétaro with architectural photographer Ariadna Polo. We’ll be taking a look at some dreamy photographs of a contemporary piece of Mexican architecture — MM House by architect Matthew Schmidt.
Ariadna kicks things off by sharing with us “It was a great session, MM House is located in a small 9 house complex that was designed by the same architect, Mathew Schmidt.
Meet my new friend Radek Úlehla, an architectural photographer from Prague. Radek instantly made me feel old, as he is just a spry 26, but then made it up to me by telling me how punk this shoot was — traveling far, fighting the weather, and inevitably getting kicked out by security.
This week’s featured project takes us back to Spain with architectural photographer Tomeu Canyellas. Tomeu has a brilliant set of photographs of OD House for Jorge Bibiloni Studio. Tomeu is the king of great compositions and repetition through leading lines.
On a Sunday morning back in the fall, I was paging through Dwell, scouring it for ideas to inform my own home remodel, and came across GRT Architects Dutchess County, which is a gorgeous piece of architecture. The only thing I loved more than the house though, was its photographs, expertly crafted by New York based photographer Brian Ferry.
Catalin Marin of Momentary Awe is back on Project of the Week with another extraordinary set of images of an epic building! Today we’ll be checking out his photographs of Foster and Partners The House of Wisdom.
He kicks things off by telling us “Sharjah, one of the UAE’s seven emirates has been investing heavily in cultural institutions in the last few years and in 2019 held the UNESCO World Book Capital title.
Today we’re taking a little trip to where no Project of the Week has gone before — Greece! I’ve had my eye on the incredible work of Athens-based architectural photographer Ioanna Roufopoulou for quite some time now, and am excited to share this series with you.
We’re shaking things up this Project of the Week with a very cool series put together by photographer Nikola Olic. Nikola is a Serbian photographer living in Dallas, Texas, and has compiled a project in which architectural photography is combined with “abstract structural quotes that reimagine their subjects in playful, dimensionless and disorienting ways.”
Today we’re being treated to a little tour of a house called Windsor Terrace by Melbourne-based photographer Michael Kai. Michael specializes in advertisements, portraits, and architecture. His work is very cool and complex, and this particular project is the embodiment of that.
