Heygate Estate by Simon Kennedy, winner of the Architecture and Place category 2011

I’m excited to be on the judging panel for the 4th Architect’s Eye photography competition, now open for entries. Open to UK architects & part II students.
Closing date for entries is Tuesday 30th April.

Organized by International Art Consultants and supported by The Royal Photographic Society, the Architect’s Eye competition has been celebrating and encouraging architects’ passion for photography since 2007. Now, in its fourth edition, UK architects are challenged to submit photos into two distinct categories: Architecture and Place and Architecture and People. The former focuses solely on the aesthetics of the architecture and places it creates, while the latter explores and celebrates the interaction of people with the environments created by architects. There are no restrictions on which buildings qualify for the competition.

The winner in each category will receive a weekend break for two anywhere in the EU. There will also be Special Commendation prizes awarded at the judges’ discretion.

The finalist and winning works will be showcased in an exhibition at Roca London Gallery coinciding with the start of the London Festival of Architecture 2013.

This year the Architect’s Eye Judging Panel is chaired by leading architect Simon Allford, Director at Allford Hall Monaghan Morris. Alongside Allford, the prestigious judging panel will be composed of renowed architect Keith Priest (Fletcher Priest Architects), noted architectural photographers Quintin Lake and George Kavanagh, Martine Hamilton Knight (The Royal Photographic Society) and Dr Irena Murray (Sir Banister Fletcher Director, British Architectural Library, RIBA).

Contemporary fit out to 1930’s semi detached house in North London by Krause Architects. This photoshoot was about getting the right simplicity of composition and colour tone to compliment the minimal and refined design. Most shots were taken with a 17mm tilt shift lens with fill-in flash when needed. As the interiors had mixed natural and artificial light sources (which appear as different colours in camera) these were balanced by masking in post production.

Oxford University Biochemistry Building at dusk, Oxford, UK. Architects: Hawkins Brown, Built 2008

Fire in the Evening, Paul Klee, Oil on board, 1929

Coloured glass fins of the New Oxford University Biochemistry Building, by Hawkins Brown frame views in and out of the building, creating complex and subtle patterns of colour as the light changes. According to the architects the fins reflect the rich red, terracotta, orange, brown and purple of the nearby buildings though to me they have a refreshingly assertive identity of their own.

The final combination and rhythm of colours was influenced by the Bauhaus artist Paul Klee’s theories as can be seen by looking at his works such as “Fire in the Evening” (above). This sophisticated use of colour in architecture won the building the WAN Colour in Architecture award in 2011. For another stunning use of coloured glass in architecture see my photographs of “My Rainbow Horizon” in Denmark
