Sebastian Weiss is a photographer, and a photo columnist at Architectural Digest Germany, based in Hamburg, Germany. His architectural photos are stunning, and I love how he really captures the essence of a building, and does it in a very minimal way.
Wonder which camera he’s using. My guess is he’s using an iPhone, but can’t confirm.
To kickoff the UK launch of the documentary film Coast Modern the filmmakers invited Build to exhibit a series of prints designed exclusively for the event. Build designed the poster above for the show, that will take place at Mead Carney gallery in London. The A1 poster is a two color screen print on Lustralux 215gsm paper, and printed by K2 Screen.
The exhibit will also feature a very limited set of 5 typographic prints, each with a word or statement taken directly from the film.
The filmmakers and the Build team will be at the show, and the film will be screened on Saturday 14th June at 4pm. The prints will be available for purchase at the shop, and on Build’s shop.
Wish. I. Were. In. London. Damnit. More info below:

Oscar Niemeyer was a Brazilian modernist architect known for his design of Brasília, and his work on the United Nations building in NYC. His design for Brasília is always an inspiration for me. The way he worked with the lines and space really make it a beautiful and functional construction.
These wonderful photos taken by Marcel Gautherot bring out the beauty in the architecture. You can see more of them, and read more about Brasília, in this article.
Johnnie Shand Kydd directed this beautiful short film of design legends Richard Meier and Massimo Vignelli. They discuss grids, Meier’s new office space, and their long friendship. Would have loved for this to have been much longer, and to get into more of a design discussion, but this will do. More here.
