The House of Photography
MetadataShow full item record
Art has always been a source of influence for architecture, working with artists or inspired by the art. Photography, as a 20th and 21st century art form can do the same thing. What is in photography that can inspire the creation of spaces and architecture? A photographer can only relate to existing objects and spaces. The result, a photograph, always depicts something real. An architect draws something that does not exist, but has the potential to be, architecture is therefore fantasy until becoming reality. The program of this diploma is to be functioning as a centre for photography reaching out to the public, simultaneously providing a working environment for professional photographers and an arena of display of photographs. A place to appreciate photography as an art form, and be offered at its different stages to an audience of photographers and visitors. Through this diploma I wish to bring the art of architecture and the art of photography together, creating architecture for photography.
