Concrete Balconies, Aveiro City, Portugal

AIA West Jersey 2010 Photo Competition – Photo Entry #5

This image was taken in Fall 2008.  There is something special in the blue hue of the Portuguese sky, especially in the crisp Autumn months.  I am fascinated by the texture of the poured in concrete structure superimposed on the silent and still blue sky.  The geometrical patterns created by the balconies adds a soothing rhythm to the  urban fabric in Aveiro.  The raw concrete reflects subtle colors from the world around it, like an unpolished mirror.

I hope you like this photograph as much as I do.

Photo of the Day – August 5, 2010

AIA West Jersey 2010 Photo Competition – Photo Entry #4

This photograph was taken last year during the annual AIA Grassroots and Leadership Conference.  To me this image captures the essence of what it means to be an Architect and a Photographic Artist.  the Architecture is not only the exterior of the building, but the volume created inside.  The artwork (in this case the Lincoln sculpture) is the focus of the space but so is the procession into the space.  Here are a few other photos I took while I was in Washington DC last year.

I hope you like this photograph as much as I do.

Photo of the Day – August 8, 2010

AIA West Jersey 2010 Photo Competition – Photo Entry #3

This image was captured in Spring 2010 when I visited Cooper Union for a symposium on Cuban Architecture.  I had so much fun photographing this building by Morphosis in between and after the seminars.  Although I have many interesting photographs of this dynamic building this one is one of my favorites because it really captures the essence of the metal curtainwall skin.  Note the letters that are bent to create positive-negative spaces.  the designers carried this theme inside the building as well.  I still have alot of editing to do, but here are a few more images of this wonderful and inspiring building.

I hope you like this photograph as much as I do.

Soul City, New York City, USA

AIA West Jersey 2010 Photo Competition – Photo Entry #2

This photograph was taken earlier this year and entered in an “Art in Architecture” design competition.  For more information please check out this website dedicated to Soul City.

In this photograph the city is reduced to a black and white image slightly tilted perhaps describing one’s disposition or agitation.  From across the river the City seems peaceful, especially when viewed as a black and white image.

I hope you like this photograph as much as I do.

Photo of the Day – August 4, 2010

AIA West Jersey 2010 Photo Competition – Photo Entry #1

This photograph was taken at a small “Modern” church in São Jacinto, Portugal, in the Fall of 2008.  I love the bright colors and shapes of the glass.  The different patterns and colors of light make up the nave of the church.  The Architecture is simple yet powerful through the use of colors and geometry.

I hope you like this photograph as much as I do.
