ARTstor Digital Library and ART on FILE partnered to release nearly 1,800 new direct capture photographs of buildings, built-environment projects, and landscape architecture in Italy. In their most recent ARTstor-sponsored campaign, photographers Colleen Chartier and Rob Wilkinson focused on architectural highlights in Rome and Venice, and captured views of the city of Florence.
Among the sites documented in Rome are the MAXXI Museum (Zaha Hadid, 2009), La chiesa di Dio Padre Misericordioso (Richard Meier, 2003), Museo dell’Ara Pacis (Richard Meier, 2006), and the Ponte della Musica (Buro Happold and Powell/Williams Architects, 2008). Highlights in Venice include: Torre Massimiliana Cultural Centre, Sant’Erasmo Island (C+S Associatti, 2004), Sculpture Garden for the 1952 Venice Biennale (Carlo Scarpa), La Giudecca (Cino Zucchi, 2002), Pinault Foundation, Punta della Dogana (Tadao Ando), Isola di San Michele (David Chipperfield), Ponte della Costituzione (Santiago Calatrava, 2010), Fondazione Querini Stampalia (Mario Botta, 2008), and the Sant’Erasmo Development (C+S Associati).
These new photographs join the approximately 14,500 images by ART on FILE already in the Digital Library. Chartier and Wilkinson have contributed selections from ART on FILE’s extensive archive of slides and transparencies, which documents contemporary architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, and public art around the world. ARTstor has also sponsored previous campaigns for ART on FILE to create new digital photographs of contemporary architecture in the United States, Europe, United Arab Emirates, and Shanghai.
