Gold 2020 Architecture / Buildings
In and Out
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.
Architect and photographer, José Roberto Bassul was born in Rio de Janeiro and lives in Brasilia. His photography turns to architecture and cityscape. In the attempt to shift the concrete world of buildings to the senses’ intangible territory, he explores abstraction and geometry. He has received several awards and his works has often been exposed in festivals, galleries and museums. With two two published photobooks, he has works in important private collections, and in the public collections of the National Museum of the Republic in Brasilia and the Art Museum of Rio de Janeiro - MAR.
