Friday Eye Candy: 2014's Best Architectural Photography
According to a post on Dezeen sharing news of the competition, "an image of the cavernous white interior of Zaha Hadid's Heydar Aliyev Center has been named architectural photograph of the year, from a shortlist that also featured a twisted skyscraper and a sunken flea market (+ slideshow)." The image was taken by British photography duo Hufton + Crow.
Photos competed in four categories: exterior, interior, sense of place, and buildings in use. For a sample of some of the other images shortlisted as finalists in the competition, Dezeen lists: "A runner-up from the Sense of Place category is an aerial view by Portuguese photographer Joao Morgado of Alvaro Siza's iconic Leça Swimming Pools full of swimmers, while a runner-up from the Buildings in Use category was a shot by Barcelona-based Inigo Bujedo Aguirre looking down into a sunken flea market by B720 Arquitectura."
