L'àlbum de l'arquitecte 01
As its name suggests, the collection L'àlbum de l'arquitecte (The Architect's Album) draws on material from architects' personal albums, photographs of their travels that express a way of seeing and, above all, of learning by observing the reality that surrounds them, to configure a new account of the importance of the gaze, travel and photography as instruments of knowledge.
This first volume presents a careful selection of images by Sigurd Lewerentz (1885 - 1975), presumably taken at the beginning of the 20th century during several of the author's trips to Italy.
