To what extant can architecture be understood from a photograph? How much do we know about and how much are we unaware of regarding a project based on a photographic image?

During this series we shall be meeting some of the most interesting contemporary Italian practitioners – an architect and a photographer – who have proved capable of creating a building, a significant place for the territory and the community, and to interpret it photographically, amplifying perception of it and its underlying meanings.

Five seminars exploring the symbiotic relationship between architecture, its designer and the photographer who portrays it

In the fourth seminar the Italian architect Werner Tscholl meets the photographer Piermario Ruggeri.

Werner Tscholl (Laces, 1955) graduated in architecture in Florence in 1981 and opened his own studio at Morter in 1983. His projects include residential buildings, numerous wine cellars in the region, including that of Termeno, the Mondadori offices built alongside the firms Segrate premises with the renovation of an old farmhouse and the restoration of Castel Firmiano, home of the Messner Mountain Museum. He participated in the Venice Biennale in 2002, 2010, 2012 and 2014.

Piermario Ruggeri was born in Milan where he lives and works. As a student he developed a passion for photography.
At the age of 23 he opened his first photographic studio. After the early years dedicated to still lifes, he began to be commissioned by figures from the world of design and also began contributing to interior design periodicals, a sector in which he was soon to specialise. Subsequently, alongside the photos of interiors he also devoted himself to work focussing on architecture. He currently works with a number of architectural firms, companies associated with the sector and real estate trusts.
