Architektur 24/7
an everyday relationship
15% photography
75% architecture
10% living

Architecture is everyday life, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
But if everyday life, as Walter Benjamin writes, is Here, which is built, and Now, which is lived, it is precisely this living that is usually not depicted in architectural photography: Representative photos of buildings often create the impression as if their occupants are away on holiday so as not to detract from the architecture.
To make everyday life appear as an image, HDA presents numerous photos from life with architecture. Architects are asked to take one picture of their buildings and landscapes that shows them in use as they see it. HDA does not curate these pictures by making a selection, but instead comments on them in the form of statements and pictures of occupants and users. This contrast of perspectives on architecture illustrates different kinds of closeness and distance to it: How close to or how far away is a building from those who planned it and those who spend their everyday life in it?
