Rector Emma Nilsson nominated to Swedish Photo Book Award!
Rector Emma Nilsson and the book field; scope; site have been nominated to the Swedish Photo Book Award. The book is a result of the artistic research project TELE SCOPE on architecture photography funded by the Swedish Research Council.
A straightforward way to introduce the work of field; scope; site would be to call it a photographic documentation of Landskrona Idrottshall, a building designed by the Danish architect Arne Jacobsen. Albeit correct, it is a somewhat misleading characterisation. The sports hall in Landskrona is indeed an object of study, but more importantly, the building constitutes an objective to conduct a series of distinctive studies, where photography is explored as a method for architectural thinking and making.
