Barcelona's Media-TIC World building of the year 2011 WAF
At the WAF awards ceremony on Friday night Enric Ruiz-Geli of Cloud 9 which designed the Media-TIC building, said it should act as a 'seed for an environmental revolution'. He said, 'If it doesn't happen, we will not succeed with our fight against global warming.'
Ruiz-Geli took to the stage with his entire family, saying, 'This is what happens when you win an award at home.' His nine-year old son, Iago, had chosen the green colour that dominates in the building, he said. Looking at his children, he added, 'These are our clients.'
Big clap Enric, Iago and all at Cloud 9!
I'm leaving Barca now for an super looking little project 'the Illuminami' showroom by Russell + George in Rome's EUR suburb - it's in view of the Square Colosseum.

Finance Ministry Plaka Athens
On 29 June 2011, violent clashes occurred between the riot police and protesters as the Greek parliament voted to accept the EU's austerity requirements. Poignantly marking the violence was this Finance Ministry building in Plaka. I was fascinated by the patina of soot left on the 70's building. Completely burnt out, the building was blacker than black in the harsh light of day. I've been photographing finance ministries Europe over - they are uncannily accurate metaphors for a countries fortunes or lack there of...

MONUMENT MAGAZINE issue 103 June/July 2011 Cover Story
My photograph of a detail of Danish designer Louise Campbell's work Displacement Activity No. 1 is the cover story of Monument magazine #103. Photographed for this issue's Frontier feature on Copenhagen, I spent a morning photographing Louise as she installed the art works in the Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art. 'Den Frie' translates as the 'The Free'. The galleryi is a 100+ year old weatherboard building oppersite Østerport station which features beautiful natural light on even the dullest Copenhagen day.
The Capitol South Yarra - A Life of Distinction
Working together with Fabio Ongarato Design and their team of Fabio, Maurice Lai, Katherine McQuarrie & Meg Phillips and my team of John Hamiliton (as maestro retoucher), Max Schafer (intern) & Andrew Butler (digital operator) along with Chris Sherwood (pilot) we've produced an advertising and art series of images for The Capitol. The Capitol designed by architects Bates Smart is a new apartment development on Toorak and Chapel Street, South Yarra. Photographing with ALPA cameras, a Leaf Aptus II-10 (56mp) digital back, Tyler Gyro, and Bell Jetranger III one image from the series has been reproduced as 12.5m x 3m Durotrans print for The Capitol's display suite. This image is one of the largest and highest resoloution prints ever made and from a helicopter while hovering over South Yarra in the late afternoon. You can visit The Capitol display suite and see the print for yourself at 367 Chapel street from 2011. I've had the pleasure too of working with Flood Slicer's Sam Slicer and Daniel Flood over the visualisations, great work!
Ordrupgaard Museum Extension Copenhagen
Photographing the Ordrupgaard Museum extension by Zaha Hadid Architects I was taken by this demonstration of the Danish concept of hygge, which roughly translates as 'cosy'. Here a flock of Finn Juhl's Pelican chairs sit in contrast to the flowing forms of Hadid's black lava like concrete.
Photographing the Australian Institute of Architects Awards 2011
The awards season has been silly! Since January 5th we’ve photographed 44 projects in 5 Australian states for the AIA chapter awards AND completed two major advertising commissions. It’s meant contending with cyclones, floods, 40+ degree heat. I photographed a beautiful house that burnt down a week later and another was cleaned out by burglars the night before the shoot!!
Accompanied by intern Roger Qian (whose blog describes the shooting blow by blow) and assistants Max Schaeffer and Nils Koenning and backed up in the studio by John Hamilton on processing and retouching we’ve covered some ground and seen some things. I’ve been humbled to have photographed some of the very best new built work in Australia. Project photography has been commissioned by Anthony Gill, Bamford-Dash, BATES SMART, BKK, BLP, Durbach Block Jaggers, HASSELL, iph, Jolson, Kerstin Thompson Architects, KUD, LYONS, Muir Mendes, NettletonTribe, NMBW, Nobbs Radford, PHOOEY, Paul Morgan and Woods Bagot.
It’s been a blast…good luck everyone!!
