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 first seminar the studio MoDusArchitects founded by Sandy Attia and Matteo Scagnol meets the photographer Marco Pietracupa:

In 2000, Sandy Attia (Cairo, 1974) and Matteo Scagnol (Trieste, 1968) initiated a professional and research project with the founding of MoDusArchitects in Bressanone. The studio has distinguished itself for its heterogeneous approach, interweaving two different cultural backgrounds that contaminate and enrich each new project with new values. The built works belong to various areas of architecture, from infrastructure to exhibition designs and furnishings.

Marco Pietracupa, born in Bressanone (South Tyrol, Italy) in 1967, moved to Milan in the early Nineties to make his passion a profession. After having frequented the Istituto Italiano di Fotografia he began working professionally and published within the ambits of the arts, fashion and portraiture.
