Material Senescence

Borrowing a term from biology, the author uses senescence to describe the ecological aging of architectural fabric in Material Senescence. Text and photographs draw from instances of failing architecture in Berlin to speculate upon the unpredictable breaking down of materials in the built environment. Foreword by Mark Minkjan titled “Transience: the Nature of Architecture”. (Click here to preview)

Palimpsest

What happens to human artifice after the fact? A search for an answer to this question is chronicled in Palimpsest, a photo book documenting the author’s archaeological investigations of abandoned sites in and around Berlin. Portrayed elegantly in black and white, Nature is cast as a pivotal actor in the palimpsest of human creation. Foreword by Manuel Wischnewski titled “Nascent Places”. (Click here to preview)
