Structural members can actually be used as an art if it has the three characteristics – efficiency – to carry load, economy – to make the construction doable and elegance – for the pleasure of our eyes. That is just one of the many things I noticed when I visited the Synthesis Architectural Photography Art Gallery during its launch at the Atrium in SM Aura.
Synthesis: an Exhibit on Architectural Photography at the SM Aura Premier
As part of SM’s Nationals Arts Month celebration this February, SM Supermalls invites everyone to Synthesis: an exhibit on Architectural Photography by Ar. Marc Henrich Go from February 28 to March 8 at The Upper Ground Atrium of SM Aura Premier.
With Dra. Vicky Belo at the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony of Synthesis Art Gallery
Showcasing the harmony between two arts, Synthesis features both the talent of Marc Henrich Go, and the works of renowned architecture and design firm Budji+Royal, underscoring the intuitive collaboration of creative minds.
A first-of-its-kind demonstration at SM Aura Premier, the evocative photos are set to indulge with meaningful spatial experiences of atmosphere and emotion through architectural photography.
A multi-awarded photographer, Ar. Marc Henrich Go is a talented lensman who has won numerous competitions and completed many international commissions. Specializing in architectural, travel, and commercial photography, his works have been featured in the covers and pages of major publications and magazines such as the Philippine Tatler, People Asia, Bluprint, and Cocoon. He recently topped the January 2018 Architect Licensure Exam. Being both an architect and photographer, his approach is a fusion of both professions that enables him to capture the essence of architecture and design through his own extraordinary perspective.
Arch. Go can see the beauty between light and darkness fused in the many photos he has taken – timber trusses and steel flanges complimenting nature. His intention for asymmetry can also be found into some of his creation. For Synthesis, most of his photographs features Budji+Royal, a design firm led by the visionary tandem of Budji Layug and Royal Pineda, who together conceived a Total Design approach where architecture, interior design, furniture, styling and landscaping are planned into an integrated whole, specifically for the unique needs of each project.
