With an outstanding quality, 2016´s best images related to the world of architecture have already seen the light. Arcaid Images´s Annual Architectural Photography Awards already has an international reputation, in spite of its four years of existence, and it is the first time that a photograph of a historical building has been awarded. This year will be remembered especially by a scene of a urban tunnel for pedestrians made of brick walls in Finsbury Park (London – United Kingdom) next to one of the canals of the Thames River. The image, by British photographer Matt Emmett (author of the Forgotten Heritage website), immortalizes with a computer-processed image one of the passages designed by East London Waterworks Company in 1868.
For three days, from November 15th to 18th, attendees at the World Architecture Festival in Berlin (Germany) were able to see the selected finalists from one of the most prolific editions in terms of variety and quality of the photographs presented. The jury was formed by high-profile professionals such as Amy Croft (curator of Sto Werkstatt), Katy Harris (Foster + communication director) or Kai-Uwe Bergmann (BIG architect).
In the final selection it is possible to contemplate images of buildings and structures that unite its architectural elements to the adjacent landscape, people or scenarios, captured by objectives that are able to stop the time at the right moment to find a timeless work of art.
