The AIA's Los Angeles chapter recently announced the winners of its second Architectural Photography Awards. Created last year, the awards recognize that photographers have long been an integral element of the architect’s work; they not only document buildings but act as translators, explicating the architect's ideas to the public.
This year's celebrated selection does just that. From images of Frank Lloyd Wright's historic Hollyhock House and Johnston Marklee's curvaceous Vault House, to ones of the famed Venice skatepark and an unremarkable parking structure, the photographs this year remind us that photography is capable of doing so much more than simply capturing a structure. Through the 2018 honorees' works, we see, not only the transcendent qualities of space, but the photographer’s eye, skill, and talent in expressing it.
Take a look at the winning selection below!
