Another architectural photography series is beginning here. There is a tremendous drive for me to showcase recent modern architecture and renovations within London.
Personally, I feel there is not enough positivity surrounding new architectural projects in the city. I know London is highly in love with preserving heritage buildings and we need to preserve our heritage. But, it doesn’t mean there are not amazing new spaces within London that could be attracting brilliant new people, increasing government funding, and raising the bar year after year.
And let’s not forget the amazing adaptive reuse of some heritage buildings too.
Many of these innovative and visionary buildings are hard to find online. My mind is continually blown when I search for a new or recent architectural project and I come up empty.
Many times I find an announcement of the project and then nothing ever again.
Let’s bring these amazing new (some older), modern spaces to be experienced by more people with beautiful architectural photography. It’s a series I hope increases community appreciation.
On another note, this series serves as my way of continually working on my craft in public. Architectural photography is what I love to shoot and I’ll take advantage of moments to continually shoot and practice. For example, I was in the Western University area on Monday and it was a great opportunity to take a few moments to snap some photos of the Ivey Business School (and the Engineering building in-progress across the street). Last time I looked up the images of Ivey they were dated. Even the photos on the actual website for Ivey could use an update.
This series will be updated periodically Also, the plan is to limit myself to sharing only a handful of the architectural images. I’m challenging myself to only post the absolute favourites instead of blasting you with 50 photos on a page.
