Photography

The photography section of the Floornature portal offers a collection of sets of photographs in which we see how architecture can take on new expressive value in photography. The editors’ selection of architecture photo features casts a spotlight on the most talented architecture photographers, offering them an opportunity to establish contacts with architects, designers and planners around the world. The key concept behind this part of the portal is that the image helps convey design: a work of architecture becomes complete when it is viewed and promoted through the image it creates of a place. Photographers thus become an essential part of the overall project in architecture, design and urban research. The architecture photos are accompanied by a few words, a brief introductory text by a critic focusing on particular photographers and what they express through their art.
