The Arcaid Images Architectural Photography Awards 2014

 

Yesterday Sto Werkstatt inaugurated Building Images: An Exhibition of the Best Architectural Photography Worldwide. The images all explore the power and impact of photography on the way we sense and experience space where the architecture itself is the focus and the photograph is the medium.

The exhibition showcases the 14 images which won or where shortlisted for The Arcaid Images Architectural Photography awards 2014. These include works by renowned architectural Photographers such as Hufton + Crow (overall winners) as well as David Borland, Sonia Mangiapane, Tim Van de Velde and Mads Mogensen. The awards were judged during the World Architecture Festival in Singapore by a highly acclaimed panel who looked beyond the architecture itself, considering the photographer’s merits in composition, light, sense of place, understanding of the project and use of scale. The award aims to accentuate the talent and creativity of the photographer who manages to translate the sophistication of architecture into a readable and understandable two dimensional portrait which explains and commends the atmosphere, elements and surrounding environment of the project.

‘Photography has long been the means of communicating architecture. Indeed the earliest known image taken with a camera obscura in the late 1820’s could be said to be architectural, it was from an upstairs window of outbuildings. The medium has changed and be it a bitumen-coated plate or a memory card the technology is only a means to an end. It is the interpretation, the eye and the creatively of the photographer that the Arcaid Images Architectural Photographer of the Year Awards focuses on.’

-Lynne Bryant, co-founder of Arcaid Images

Whilst the award is subdivided into four categories exploring diverse architectural qualities, Amy Croft (The Sto Werkstatt Curator) enjoys playing around and juxtaposing these within the exhibition establishing an extremely exciting and light atmosphere. This is further emphasised by the way the images are displayed, where instead of hanging off partition walls Croft ingeniously adopts StrucTube, Martin Beck’s reconstruction of a modular exhibition system originally designed by George Nelson in 1948. The system is one of the early precursors of many portable exhibition systems developed in the late 1950s and early 1960s, when the exhibitory apparatus and display were thought capable of realizing a utopian belief in the emancipatory potential of the exhibition as a communication format. This method of display not only allows for the images to ‘breathe’ but provides an effective way of delineating permeable spaces where the viewer can contemporarily experience more than one architectural reality.

To conclude KooZA/rch invites you to visit this great space which is fast becoming known as an important East London cultural hub for architectural and design discourse, presenting a programme of exhibitions ,CPD’s workshops and consultations for the architectural façade and acoustics experts.

Building Images is free and open to the public from 15 January to 26 February at Sto Werkstatt in Woodbridge street Clerkenwell, London. The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of talks and seminars, where the public will have the opportunity to explore further the medium of photography as well as talk with leading people in the field of architecture, photography and media.
