The Art of Building 2016

The 15 finalists of this year’s Art of Building architectural photography competition have been selected from thousands of entries. Here ( BBC ) we present the photos along with a comment from each photographer.

I picked these up at BBC. I like the one with ladders especially. That is also an art of building a building. πŸ˜‰

About the above image: Jonathan Walland: “This is part of a series of photographs demonstrating how the absence of light can be used to divert the attention of the observer towards what the photographer intended to highlight.”



Michele Palazzo: “New York City’s iconic Flatiron building emerges from the blizzard, like the bow of a giant ship ploughing through the wind and the snow. Taken during the historic coastal storm, Jonas, on 23 January 2016, the photograph went viral during the aftermath of the storm.”


Enrique Gimenez-Velilla: “This photo seeks to pay homage to all the clever unknown workers that still build and maintain built infrastructure in the developing world.”

_92948185_12_the_gherkin_by_james_tarryJames Tarry: “This series is about looking past imperfections and ‘incorrect’ architectural photography techniques. The expired Kodak Ektachrome was developed in the ‘wrong’ chemicals to produce these big slabs of often other-worldly colour. These are flawed and hopefully challenging, just like some of the buildings themselves.”
