Tübingen-based photographer Boris Loder was searching for a new approach towards architectural photography. He didn’t just want to display surfaces of a building, instead he was eager to show a building in its complete symmetrical and structural form.
So he edited the shoots he took in the streets, exposed them out of their circumference and concentrated on form and structure. The motives are run down buildings, littered with graffiti and crumbling paint. As a result the images seem to be very plastic blueprints.

Mitología y modernidad convergen en este mirador del estudio noruego Rintala Eggertsson Architects. Es conocido el mito en esa zona del país nórdico sobre una serpiente acuática que vivía en el lago Seljord y sus historias sobre misteriosos fenómenos se han contado por siglos. En 2008, el municipio de Seljord decidió utilizar este mito como punto de partida para un programa de desarrollo para la zona.

Vitti is one of the most prestigious villas available in St. Barts. The terrace gives tons of shade without distracting you from the terrific view of the Caribbean ocean. An infinity pool gives the extremely realistic effect of water falling into the water below. The villa comes packed with 5 luxurious bedrooms, each with their own view of the ocean. Bedrooms 3, 4 and 5 don’t get views of the pool, so they have portholes that let people see through the wall.

The project is a redevelopment of several small independent houses that are located within the historical city center of Modica, Sicily. The houses were originally single family homes and are arranged in a circle around a Mediterranean garden. Each room has an entrance from the garden and a private terrace which overviews the historical center of Modica. The project idea was inspired by the typical model of a Moroccan Riad, where traditionally the common spaces or a garden lie at the heart of the house.
— What was your inspiration to leave Milan and open a hotel in Sicily?
“My wife and I once organised a workshop for architects in Tuscany. We thought about place, hospitality and food. For us, it was a good opportunity to feel how nice it is outside of the big city. Then, in 2001, we came to Sicily for a summer holiday. It was a coincidence that we came to Modica, but we ended up spending 15 days here, forgetting everything else. We were really impressed and fell in love with the city. My father is Sicilian, from the north of the island, so when I arrived here, I felt a real connection with Sicily. My wife and I began by buying just one room, and every time we came back to visit, we purchased another. After eight months, we had bought 12 different properties.”
