  • 2G 18 Architecture & Energy (2G International Architecture Review, 18)


    Paperback 30 x 23 cm 144 pp color illustrated pages text: english/español Quarterly publication ISSN: 1136·9647 This issue investigates which energy architectures shape and express the world in which we live, and how they do so. Present and participate in the energy discourse -which is central to industrialized societies- and discover a world that had been hidden for a long time: the territory where energy is produced and transported. There are many reasons to address this issue at this time: negative reasons that reflect the state of the world, a state that -as we all know since the Rio summit- is due to energy policy decisions; and positive reasons that are related to a recent phenomenon: the new energy architecture. This -that is, the architecture of transformer stations, substations, hydroelectric plants, etc.- has increased in importance in the last decade. Several projects, mostly European, combine high architectural quality and the desire to “be seen” (aspects that are naturally related). Its new visibility recalls the “golden age” of the architecture of electricity that took place between 1900 and the end of World War II, and that is presented as a vigorous alternative to the anonymous

    Hitonatsu JP Oversized – January 1, 1995
    Japanese Edition by George Hashiguchi (Photographer)

    Photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto (Japanese, b.1948) is known for his explorations of the illusionary properties of photography. Born in Tokyo, Sugimoto initially studied politics and sociology at St. Paul’s University in Tokyo, but in 1970 he enrolled at the Art Center College of Art and Design in Los Angeles to study Fine Art. He subsequently moved to New York, where he established himself as a photographer interested in the representation of reality. Influenced by Dada and Surrealist techniques and aesthetics, Sugimoto photographed movie and opera houses, natural history dioramas, and wax figures, using long exposures to create eerie scenes with unnatural lighting. Sugimoto is also a practicing architect and has designed specific spaces to exhibit his photography; his interest in architecture is also evident in his numerous photographs of old buildings. His work is highly esteemed and has been shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Hara Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, among other institutions. He has also received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Sugimoto currently divides his time between Tokyo and New York. He is represented by many galleries such as The Pace Gallery and the Gagosian Gallery.
