The aim is to expand theoretical and practical knowledge about photography in the representation of space and architecture, starting from the approach to the work of RCR Arquitectes and the photography of Hisao Suzuki. The exercises combine reflection on the work process and its implementation from a conscious approach to space and everything that surrounds us, thus contributing to the awakening of the senses and stimulating the creation of communicative, adaptable images also to the new digital formats and social media trends, and that make us experience, want to touch, listen and be in this place.

Exercise: Air

We explore the topic of air, a unique and volatile element. The definition of air embraces a set of chemical elements, a concept, an inspiration. It is the source of life and death, and it plays a significant role in the conditions for man, animals and landscapes. It also means beauty and a source of inspiration in art and architecture. It can make the invisible visible: light, a mood, an atmosphere, or creating spaces by drawing limits in the air.

Exercise directed by Hisao Suzuki with the coordination and tutoring of Júlia de Balle and the assistance of Theo Domini and Fumi Suzuki.
