|Workshop||Architecture Outdoor Photography Class - Lincoln Center|
|Location||70 N Broadway New York|
|Difficulty level||Beginners and beyond|
|Group size||10 students max.|
This outdoor photography class has been designed for those who have an interest in architecture and want to capture the details of the most amazing buildings in New York City.
The outdoor class will be held at the Lincoln Center and will be under the direction of Luciano Landaeta (architect) and Patricia Burmicky (photography instructor).
We will have a brief introduction and review the history of this cultural complex. We will be guided to analyze the elements that constitute fundamental contributions to the architecture: a glance from the general to the particular, from the site to the windows mullions, and all the possibilities that can be captured through photographs.
A cultural enclave located to the West side of Broadway and its encounter with Columbus Avenue in the urban fabric of Manhattan.
Since 1956, it has been the place where the performing arts are housed for the Opera, academic music, theatre and converges with the Julliard School of Music to amply its creation spectrum.
It has been the "Agora" of the arts that Robert Moses visualized for the city of New York back in the 50’s: a place where four neutral cladded buildings serve as containers of the arts.
Each building is enriched by details of design that reflect the architect’s interest to make this place an epicenter of creation and a leisure destination for all inhabitants of NYC and visitors.
This location is ideal for winter as it will allow spending a lot of time indoors and buying a coffee if needed.
You will learn to look at it from far and near, from its volume and massiveness, to its elaborate and detailed façade. Discover New York City’s architecture through the creative combination of the eye and the lens.
