AWARDS WINNERS 2018 Nov 2018

Cologne: Florian W. Mueller

Title: Concrete Cross

"The image is part of my series “Concrete Cross”, a series about churches, built in the style of “Brutalismus”, mostly in the 1970’s.

One of the main architects of this genre is Pritzker prize-award winner, Gottfried Böhm. He has been considered to be both an Expressionism and post-Bauhaus architect, but he prefers to define himself as an architect who creates "connections" between the past and the future, between the world of ideas and the physical world, between a building and its urban surroundings.

The picture was shot in the Church of The Resurrection of Christ (1971) and shows a part of the entrance.

In the series, I play with fragments and details of concrete facades and elements, which are illuminated through colorful church windows. This shows a wonderful interaction between the somehow clean but organic surface of the concrete and the light."
