On the run up to the Stirling Prize, 2016, The Architect’s Journal takes a look into the six nominated buildings, with interviews from the architects.
Made up of 235 tenure-blind, high-quality homes of which 25% are affordable dwelling. The project transforms the built environment whilst respecting the history of neighbouring buildings. Trafalgar Place is a flagship housing project for Lendlease and is a part of their wider redevelopment of the Elephant and Castle.
The transformation of the former Heygate Estate enriches the qualities of the area, creating a thriving, desirable place to live, work and visit. Separate buildings are integrated within an open green landscape characterised by mature trees and diverse new planting. A new public realm within the historic fabric of the neighbourhood is created.

My debut film in aerial cinematography. The title translates into something like “air-angle” or “air-peaks” referring to the Dolomites grand rock towers reaching into the sky.
I shot this with a DJI Phantom 4 whilst also shooting timelapses as keystone of my business.

It has endless edges, tints and singularities. Berlin is a power city. You can feel it there. It’s positive and razor sharp simultaneously. Berlin can be strong and complex for its visitors.
I tried my very best to catch the spirit of it. At least how I felt it running in the cold streets with my camera.

The German artist Andreas Gursky is regarded as one of the leading contemporary photographers. He is renowned for his large scale, digitally manipulated photographic images. In 2007, the Kunstmuseum Basel staged an exhibition with 25 works by Andreas Gursky, including the F1 Pit Stop and Pyongyang series.
Since they commenced their creative directorship of Valentino in 2008, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli have made a point of opening the exclusive and enigmatic world of couture to a new audience. From conducting atelier visits to clarifying the importance of the relationship between an idea and its making, the duo explain how and why they are presenting a less well-known side to “Made in Italy”.
A trio of powder professors ascend Alaska’s Chugach, rising above the desolate and rain-soaked primordial soup of lower elevations, and evolving upwards into the purple-hued peaks that tower above the clouds — a world of brilliant color and life. The mountains become the laboratory in which they embark upon extensive study and experimentation, in order to form theories on some of mankind’s oldest questions: how did life begin, and what makes this life worth living?

For the 2016 Spring/Summer Prada Real Fantasies, AMO graphically reinterprets the Indefinite Hangar as a synthetic sunset fixed within a 3 dimensional blank space. The abstract hangar is populated with geometric objects and furniture. Models move through a neutral scene between the undefined and distilled fragments of daily life. The horizon and scale constantly shifts, manipulating the frame and disrupting a linear sequence: an artificial landscape where fiction and collection collide.
AMO and Prada have been collaborating on the fashion house’s lookbooks since the Spring/Summer 2007 show, merging the collection with graphic and visual imagery through collage and hand-drawn shapes. Since the Spring/Summer 2012 show AMO has turned the project into Real Fantasies, a graphic short movie, introducing animation and music to the lookbooks. The project highlights the attitude of Prada and the conceptual references of the collection, season after season.
This is the 16th edition of the Prada Real Fantasies.

Torre David, a 45-story office tower in Caracas, was almost complete when it was abandoned following the death of its developer and a national banking crisis that crippled the Venezuelan economy in 1994. Neglected for over a decade, in 2007 it became the improvised home for a community of over 800 families living in an extra-legal and tenuous occupation that many called a vertical slum.
This short documentary reveals what life was like for residents several years prior to the government’s eviction in 2014. Filmed as part of larger project by the interdisciplinary design team, Urban-Think Tank, the movie was part of a larger research and design project that resulted in a book and numerous exhibitions, including the Golden-Lion-winning exhibition at the 2012 Venice Biennale of Architecture.
