More about Thomas Florschuetz

More than 80 years ago, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe took part in a competition for the design of a club house for the newly founded Krefeld Golf Club. Due to the Great Depression however, the house was never built. In 2013, Mies’ design was finally put into practice under the artistic directorship of the Belgian architect Paul Robbrecht at the initially planned site on the outskirts of Krefeld. The model was built according to the original plans as a walkable architecture model at a scale of 1:1, thus creating a highly exceptional exhibition of architecture. Visitors were able to see and experience the basic design concepts of Mies van der Rohe. Due to his long term interest in the architecture of Mies van der Rohe, Thomas Florschuetz visited the model several times and developed a stunning series of photographs. More about project MIK

The images of the series Untitled (K52) feature blurred patterns of colors and shapes, whereby evoking an atmosphere of mysteriousness. In some pictures the ice forms a craquelure pattern on the glass, or the view outside through the window shimmers indistinctly through a fogged surface. Outside and inside condense atop the glass, like on a ground glass screen. By using the same detail of the window for all images in the series and because the shots were taken within a relatively short period of time, small but distinct changes are visible, unfurling a visual spectrum that ranges from abstract surface and monochrome gradient to dimly adumbrated spatial contours.
In the picture-perfect Ohne Titel (CC) 20, Florschuetz focuses on the Capitol Complex planned by Le Corbusier in Chandigarh, India. This city is part of the planned sites, which have been built by famous architects after the independency of the state in 1947.
