Paris Abstract by Michael Wolf

In Paris Abstract Michael Wolf explores the urban landscape, fascinated with density and life in cities. Formal in nature, Paris Abstract lyrically expresses both the architectural complexity and density of the Parisian landscape.

Born in Munich in 1954, Michael Wolf was raised in the United States and Germany. He studied at UC Berkeley before earning a degree from the University of Essen in Germany as a student of Otto Steinert. Wolf is recipient of a 2005 and 2010 World Press Photo Award, and his work was included in the Hong Kong Pavilion at the 2010 Venice Biennale for Architecture. Paris Abstract has been exhibited at the Robert Koch Gallery in San Francisco.

In 2008 Michael Wolf began living part-time in Paris after living in Hong Kong for over a decade.
At that time he was apprehensive about the prospect of working in his new home city, concerned about the clichés associated with images of Paris. It was during this period that he produced the series Paris Street Views by essentially sequestering himself in his apartment and appropriating images of Paris from Google Street View.

Since then, with his distinct perspective, Wolf photographed Paris eschewing well-known locations and focusing instead on the innumerable roof tops each with its own identity. Wolf’s strong geometric abstractions offer the viewer a freshly re-contextualized Parisian landscape that examines the density and life in a contemporary metropolis.

GIO PONTI. Loving architecture

Design | July 9, 2020

Architect, designer, art director, writer, poet and critic, Gio Ponti was an allround artist who traversed much of the 20th century, profoundly influencing the taste of his time, responding to its most significant demands and anticipating many of the themes of contemporary architecture. 40 years on from his passing, MAXXI, the National Museum of XXI Century Arts, is devoting a major retrospective to this exceptional figure.
