Architectural photography is now one of the most important mediums for recording, documenting, communicating and sharing architecture and constructed space. It is able to convey the dimensions and character of a place, as well as the emotions associated with it. An architectural publication would be unthinkable without such images.
This issue of DIVISARE BOOKS is part of series investigating the contemporary realm of Chinese architecture and the multiple ways it is reinventing a recognisable cultural common ground. An architectural journey driven by the lens of outstanding photographers and their visual narrations of built spaces, strong materiality and intangible feelings.
The photo essay by SU Shengliang explores the architectural space of the Seashore Library in Qinhuangdao, Hebei province, China, designed by Vector Architects.
