Phaeno Science Center
It's been a while so I am totally stoked to finally release another personal architectural project today. I shot it in summer and at least found the time to process the exterior series which you can find at my website:
I created this series of the Phaeno Science Center built in Wolfsburg, Germany in 2005 in memory of one of the most inspiring architects of our time, Zaha Hadid. I always wanted to shoot one of her buildings and it was simply awesome to do so finally. I love the overall concept of this building with its raw and almost bulky concrete structure, that nevertheless has a superdynamic and almost lightweight look because it is built on large pillars and seems to hover slightly above the city. In contrast to most other concrete buildings we see daily, the extravagant forms and cutted out elements of the Phaeno, especially on the inside, give it a very modern, almost futuristic look and are totally appealing to photograph for sure. The building integrates really well in to the center of Wolfsburg city and especially the underpass which opens the main train station to the center underlines impressively that the urban planning of the builing was well thought too.
