Construction site photography is of great importance to our studio and we constantly try to overcome, by applying strong economic incentives, the reasons for not turning it into a widespread practice. The knowledge that it gives us both about the project, its space and basic ideas, puts us in an optimal position for the completion of final report. That record allows us to completely cover our concept of documentary architectural photography, providing valuable information for the various participants of the architectural process (administrations, invertors, architects, construction companies, specialists …), something that cannot always be done from the finish.

We are currently conducting follow-up documentation and photographic work in the new public library in Ceuta. The project by Paredes Pedrosa Arquitectos won the architectural competition in 2007 and has been published by some media.

This is an interesting intervention that responds to the request to install a hospitality school in the old building of the abattoir, Cadiz in the town of Medina Sidonia. The project developed from an initial position of engagement with the place and the existing building (analysis, development and respect for the town and its old slaughterhouse), further the search for architectural, more personal, a certain formal abstraction. It reaches its expansion in areas not built and annexes, being especially notable and free decks. As we show some images of all, this solution is not at all the result of a rhetorical exercise. The aim is rather fit and “shelter” the building in its urban reality. The right look, established some distance, forms reveals that, color and materials are anything but capricious and, perhaps- were present between the lines in a text that this project has been able to read in poetic form.
