    Gold in Architecture / Buildings

The In and Out series is an homage to the great Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza, whose work stands out for its sensitivity and simplicity. All images were taken from the same building, the headquarters of the Iberê Camargo Foundation in Porto Alegre, Siza's only work in Brazil. Abstract fractions of the building allow to accentuate the formal and rhythmic articulation between its interior and exterior spaces.

José Roberto Bassul was born in Rio and lives in Brasilia. His photography turns to architecture and urban environment as an attempt "to draw thoughts, project desires and built spaces for the imagination". He has received several awards and his works has often been exhibited in festivals, galleries and museums in solo and group shows in Brazil and abroad. He has published two photobooks. His works belong to important private and public collections such as those of National Museum of Republic (Brasilia), Art Museum of Rio, Museum of Modern Art (Rio) and Museum of Photography (Fortaleza)
