In Therapy: Nordic Countries Face to Face exhibition at the Nordic Pavilion, Venice Architecture Biennale 2016
We were very excited to see a selection of five of our images presented at the Nordic Pavilion. As the temperatures begin to rise in Italy the design and architecture world turn their eyes and critical analysis to the Venice Biennale 2016. The official press opening at the Nordic pavilion attracted significant attention and the crowds gathered to hear the curator David Basulto, co-founder, CEO and Editor-in-Chief of ArchDaily introduce the exciting concept of ‘acknowledging the presence of the ghosts of Nordic architecture’.
The step pyramid, built using traditional construction techniques from Swedish Pine, provides a visually stimulating and engaging environment. As the pavilion flooded with curious visitors, the dynamic interaction with the space was fascinating to witness. Adults climbed up the slated pyramid into the rafters of celebrated architect Sverre Fehn’s sublime Nordic pavilion. Children enthusiastically run up and down the steps collecting images for their little bags given away at the show. These steps then provided an auditorium for the critical debate of Nordic architecture.

This is a fun new school just outside of Oslo we photographed. The children really enjoyed getting involved, we think it brings so much more life to the images! They especially loved seeing the drone in action, we were over run with assistants.

Here’s a picture for all the green renewable energy enthusiasts.
The Ice Arena Wales is now officially open and we were there to photograph the first national Ice Hockey game! The structure is designed by Scott Brownrigg one of our regular clients. I had two young photo assistants joining me in Cardiff for this exciting shoot. They also provided the production images, so a big thank you to Nalani and Adelaide White for their creative input.
Images from our latest shoot in Paris for UGC, Europe’s second largest cinema operator with 44 cinemas and 488 screens! Opened in 1937 in the Modern Art style the cinema has a long rich history including many film premieres and acting as a theatre for Nazi soldiers during the occupation of France. Watch out for some of UGC’s newest cinemas coming here soon.
We were recently in Berlin working and decided some aerial images of the snow scattered landscape were required. Here are a few drone images taken over the Sanssouci Palace in Potsdam, just on the outskirts of Berlin. It was a design / build job completed by Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff between 1745 and 1747. King Fredrick decided he needed a retreat where he could escape from the pomp and ceremony of the Berlin court, Sanssouci was the result. In 1990 the site became a World Heritage site protected by UNESCO.
Here’s a funky little extension tucked up in the forests of Bergen. Entilen Arkitekter have cleverly managed to gain some extra real estate space for the owner of this large residual block. The new extension with it’s dramatic over hang nestles in a dense forrest over looking the King and Queen of Norway’s summer retreat. The beautiful fairy tale Gamlehaugen (It can spotted in the distant of the interior view)
