Architecture has always been a platform for the discussion of zeigeist, everyday life and aesthetics. Concrete - Photography and Architecture provides visual answers to the question of what is that makes up the intimate relationship between architecture and photography. To what extent does photography influence not only the way architecture is perceived, but also the way it is designed? How does an image bring architecture to life? We explore issues of history and ideology, as well as the specifics of form and material in the photographic image. The visual appeal of destroyed buildings is addressed, but also demonstrations of power, fragility and beauty.
