A new photobook in the studio: Naoya Hatakeyama – Excavating the Future City. This book explores in stages the process of building from the raw material, to construction, to building usage and finally demolition. Photographed over a period of 30 years.

There’s an interesting film about the book and the photographer’s work here.

Spent the evening at Apple’s Covent Garden store for an insightful talk by photographer, Richard Gaston. Richard spoke about his process to capture his landscape projects across the Scottish Highlands: hours spent camped to capture the right photograph with all the variables of Scottish weather. After the talk the audience got the chance to follow along his editing process in Lightroom for iPad.

Over the past week, we’ve spotted a number of geese on the move across Walthamstow.

Back from the printers is one of our photographs taken in Tentsmuir Forest (a forest by the sea in the north-east corner of Fife) on our trip earlier this month. Produced by The Print Space – an A1, C-Type print onto Fuji Matt paper.

An afternoon spent following Modernist Estate’s No6 Perambulations: Barbican to Bloomsbury. The route starts from The Brunswick Centre, arcs north to Camden and back down to the Barbican.

Photo taken at Maiden Lane Estate, designed by Benson and Forsyth.

We spent the weekend in Edinburgh and took the opportunity to see the city from a different perspective: on a boat tour to see the three bridges (along with countless seals).

Our boat trip was followed with dinner at The Fishmarket Newhaven.

Popped into New London Architecture’s space in Coal Drops Yard to see their extensive model of central London. Worth stopping by when in the area.

We took some time off to head to North Wales with family. Highlights in the area include: Y Garreg cafe and community store, Celtic Cabin in Barmouth and the National Cycle Route 8 Bryncir to Caernarfon.

Photo taken on the road into Harlech.

Over the weekend, we visited Turner Works latest project, Hackney Bridge.

Situated on the edge of the Olympic Park, there are a number of spaces for small businesses: hospitality, retail, creative and event space. There’s a clever use of materials throughout: from wood stains to off-the-shelf sheet materials.

One to save for revisiting next year: the blossom in Aldgate Square.

Based in north-east London, our studio is next to Walthamstow Wetlands – Europe’s largest urban wetland nature reserve offering fresh air and green space on the doorstep.

Night skiing at Oslo Vinterpark. It’s a 40-minute metro ride from the centre of Oslo with views across the city and the neighbouring forests. On Weekdays it’s open until 10pm.

A visit to neighbours Square Mile Coffee for a tour and tasters. Based in the Uplands Business Park, they roast, pack and test here.

We spent the weekend in Stockholm and spotted these (brave!) winter swimmers on a walk from Aspudden to Konditori Lyran.

A case of the Favorit typeface at the Rimowa store in London. The type is used as part of the embossing process of a luggage tag.
