Humanising architecture

This abridged photo essay is an excerpt taken from our recent publication, Ideas on Co-creation. To read more, you can find the publication here.

Photography is a key instrument in the architect’s marketing toolkit, in which physical spaces and materials take centre stage; but it’s the people—how they adopt, adapt and make spaces their own—that make a building come to life. In the photo essay at right, Roman Koester inverts the traditional architectural photograph to foreground the people who inhabit these spaces, capturing the lived realities that transpire within.

Roman Koester is a Photographer and Architect at Sheppard Robson.
