Architecture Week – DAY 6 – Undercity Photography

DAY 6

Undercity photography

.

I’ve been thinking about what has inspired me as an Architect all week. It is Architecture week afterall, and I’ve needed to recharge my creative batteries. Like most, Architects, when you ask me what inspires me, I tend to think of buildings. Specific structures designed with a level of craft and shear design bravado instantly jump to mind. I think of specific designers I admire, specific structures I find elegant and moving.

But, what if you remove the designer from the process? Maybe some of the most amazing spaces are not designed by Architects at all. Can you find inspiration in a combination of industry, engineering, corrosion, accented with shafts of light…?

Somewhere underground.

Steve Duncan at Undercity.org (Guerrilla History and Urban Exploration) was kind enough to allow me to post some of his photographs. Please check out his site HERE for more photos and underground inspiration, and buy yourself a print while you’re there. I couldn’t be more impressed with his photographs.
