    Matthias Heiderich: Spektrum Eins (detail)

Photographer Matthias Heiderich – putting the candy-striped joy back into warehouse architecture

Posted by Liv Siddall,

We all appreciate someone who makes our world look a little brighter, and Berlin-based Matthias Heiderich does just that. The interesting thing about his knock-you-off-your-seat architectural photographs is not just the candy-striped colours of the buildings that he has a strong knack for picking out, but perhaps the dramatic change of tone as you switch from one of his projects to the next. In an almost comical fashion we are one minute admiring a set of artificially rainbowed warehouse structures and then, unnervingly, with one click we are then dropped into a misty and deserted basketball court, or beside a terrifyingly soviet concrete building. Three cheers for Matthias though, as with each set of photographs, no matter how disparate, they are all equally breathtaking, and we are big fans.
