January 25, 2017 ‘Building Images’: The best architectural photography of 2016

‘Building Images’ — an annual exhibition of architectural photography — opens at London’s Sto Werkstatt on February 9, 2017.

For this fourth installment, the show highlights the world’s most renowned architectural photographers, celebrating the importance of image in the way we experience and engage with the built environment.

Broken down into four categories — sense of place, interiors, exteriors, and buildings in use — the exhibition explores different architectural qualities and the broad range of photographic styles used to capture them.

‘I believe architectural photography has the unparalleled ability to make works of architecture and their artistic interpretation accessible to the wider public,’ Amy Croft, curator at Sto Werkstatt said.
