BK Talks: In conversation: Johannes Schwartz
On 10 October, photographer Johannes Schwartz will engage in a conversation with students who submitted their work for the exhibition “Sight, Site, Situations. Photography as an instrument for design.”
The exhibition, currently displayed in the Oostserre of our Faculty, underscores the vital role of photography as a tool for architects, urbanists, and landscape architects, enabling them to comprehend, interpret, and shape the built environment.
During this event, all participants will have the opportunity to discuss their work with Johannes Schwartz, not only focusing on the pieces presented in the exhibition but also delving into photography's broader significance as a tool that enriches the process of understanding and designing the built environment. The conversation will explore the profound ways in which photography empowers designers to establish connections with their sites.
