Photographing the new WU University Campus

Largely unnoticed the new university campus of the Economic University of Vienna (Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien) was build in a rather remote part of the city. So most of us knew about the construction plans but little did we know about the futuristic character and the sheer extent of the sight. What a surprise! The campus consists of about 6 to 8 buildings constructed by different architects in different styles. In common they have a modern and environmental friendly approach. They are centered around a student plaza effectively creating a public space for its “citizens”. There are also a couple of cafés and shops there. One of them being the “Campus” (shot 4) with a mixed approach of modernism and natural elements consisting of wood and plants. The centerpiece of the campus is the library (as it should be). It was designed by an architect from Hamburg and is simply astonishing (shots 2 – 3 exterior, shots 7 – 9 interior).

Afternoon Project: London Pt. 3, Before Remembrance Day

As it turned out the day I was in London on the 10th of November also was the day before Remembrance Day and Westminster was in full preparations for the big event. Remembrance Day basically evolved out of the mourning for the death of World War I and became a kind of Veterans Day with a lot of military parades and symbolism. Interestingly already the day before there were a lot of veterans on White Hall and I had the chance to photograph some of them.

Afternoon Project: London Pt. 1

Being on a conference trip in London the past weekend I didn’t have much spare time to enjoy the city be itself. So there was just one sunday afternoon to dive into the urban jungle of the British capital. Equipped with my camera I wandered around Westminster, Trafalgar up to Paddington where I had to catch my train. So the picture reflect these time constraints I had. There was no time to adjust and to wait for the perfect moment. I just captured the street life as it happened around me.
