I am not a fan of the architecture of the 1960’s and 70’s, in particular brutalism. That said, I do enjoy photographing it. The lines and stark shapes make for some excellent photos. This is a photo of the roof of the Staatstheater in Darmstadt, Germany. It opened in 1972, as the original building was destroyed in 1945. The architect won a national prize for the building. My only comment about it is that it looks very dated. But fun to photograph.
I like the composition of this picture the most. I like the contrast of the random and natural clouds with the man made straight lines of the building. It symbolizes what humans are in a constant struggle to do: bring order to and control nature. I converted this picture to black and white, since it is isn’t very colorful anyway. But everything seemed to blend together in B&W and I like the blue sky adding some color and more contrast to it.
