Matthias Hoch

Posted by Charlotte Simmonds,

You don’t have to be an architect to understand that buildings have their own life force. Something about them has always seduced us humans – we’ve named them, worshiped them, even granted them supernatural powers. Matthias Hoch has devoted a career to them; documenting the vacant, the geometric, and the structural with the precision of a surgeon and the eye of an old master. Why have we not celebrated him before? Well we’re doing it now. Take note.
