Titled Building Images, the exhibition at Clerkenwell’s Sto Werkstatt, a workshop and gallery space, will feature the shortlisted nominees for the 2015 Arcaid Images Architectural Photography Awards.
Judged by an international panel of architects, photographers and critics, the awards celebrate their entrants’ ability to capture complex architectural forms. They also highlight the architecture photographer's mastery of more general photographic virtues, such as composition, light, atmosphere and use of scale.
This year’s overall winner was the Lisbon-based photographer Fernando Guerra for his work on the EPFL Quarter Nord in Ecublens, Switzerland. Shot at night, the winning image of this prismatic student accommodation block captures residents using the building's exterior walkways.
The competition is divided into four categories, each with its own runner-up. Tom Roe took the Sense of Place category for an image of Sri Lanka’s Kandalama Hotel, while Ying Fei Tan and Song Han were selected from the Buildings in Use category for a sky-facing photograph of the Quarry Bay housing development in Hong Kong. Su Shengliang topped both the Interior and Exterior categories for images of Atelier Deshaus’ Long Museum West Bund in Shanghai.
