Constructing Worlds: Photography and Architecture in the Modern Age

Eighteen photographers, including Andreas Gursky, Charles and Ray Eames, Bernd and Hilla Becher and Julius Shulman, captured seminal moments in 20th and 21st-century architecture. From Le Corbusier's town-planning masterwork Chandigarh, shot by cinematographer Lucien Hervé, to Berenice's Abbott's documentation of the rise of the New York skyscraper, and Bas Princen's survey of the Middle East's urban transformation, Constructing Worlds considers architecture as the photographer's favourite muse.
