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.
We’re excited to have our friend Dave Burk back on Project of the Week today, this time with another absolute gem crafted by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill! Feast your eyes on Dave’s photographs of the National Museum of the United States Army. With its ever-changing reflective stainless steel facade, Dave harnessed different lighting conditions and compositions that resulted in a powerful, unreplicable, and otherworldly looking series — one that we’ve all been swooning over here at the APA camp.
Hey Project of the Week fans, meet my new friend Raphaël Thibodeau, an awesome Montreal-based architectural photographer! I’ve been eyeing up Raphaël’s work — and this series of Résidence Maribou by Alain Carle Architect in particular — because of its clean, understated, and natural air.
Today’s project of the week takes us to a little ‘ole state that we don’t hear from too often — Kansas. We’ll be checking out this lovely house in Spring Hill, right outside of Kansas City, Kansas. It was photographed by Kansas City, Missouri based Architectural photographer Nate Sheets.
Today we’re taking a trip to a place that I’ve been enthralled by for a while now! This week’s featured project takes us to sunny Calpe, Spain to a postmodern apartment complex — the fabled La Muralla Roja. Muralla Roja was designed by architect Ricardo Bofill in 1968 and is esteemed for its bold colors and blocky, labyrinth-like design.
Aussie architectural photographer Peter Bennetts has traveled far and wide making great photos of architecture — from Tuvalu to Finland, and everywhere in between — but today’s project takes us to Rome where we’ll find the MAXXI National Museum of 21st Century Art designed by Zaha Hadid’s Patrik Schumacher.
Today’s featured project takes us to dreamy St Helena, California where photographer Aubrie Pick will be showing us a beautiful Napa gem — Sinegal Winery. Aubrie is a real photographic tour de force, and a quick scroll down her site will showcase her flexibility and prowess at her craft.
Meet my new friend Ruksana Hussain, a Dubai based architectural photographer who makes some immensely beautiful images, always complete with interesting light patterns and fantastic form. Today, we’ll be pouring over Ruksana’s time spent photographing The Abu Dhabi Edition.
Step inside this perfect concrete monolith with us today for Project of the Week before it is revisited on Grand Designs this February. If it feels familiar to you, you probably spotted the unfinished home on the show in 2018. This brute is back, finished up, and photographed for the first time since its completion by the incredible architectural photography studio Tarry and Perry.
Happy Friday and welcome to sunny Solana Beach! Today, we’re checking out the work of California based photographer Tim Melideo. Tim has been gracious enough to share a heap of insight into this project, so I’ll let him take it away! Tim kicks things off by explaining “Seaside Reef was a project by my architect friend Alec Petros of Alec Petros Studio.
We could all use a little trip these days, so this week, Cologne-based architectural photographer Annika Feuss is taking us on a visual vacation to Villa Extramuros. Extramuros is a Villa-Hotel in Arraiolos, Portugal, and Annika shows off its gorgeous graphic shape, tranquil interior, fruit trees, and relaxing air, just perfectly!
A week or so ago here on APA, I gushed about the Unsent Postcard project which was cofounded by architect-turned-photographer Lorenzo Zandri. Not only is that project (and Lorenzo’s other very cool personal projects) wonderful, but his architectural photography is just out of this world.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We’re back with “Project of the Week” veteran Tom Harris! Today we’re checking out Tom’s gorgeous photographs of The University of Iowa’s Visual Arts Center designed by Steven Holl Architects. 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.
