Light reading

– What do two architectural photographers do on a day off?

– Uhhh…photograph architecture?

This is one of those things you just know you have to do, but can never seem to get around doing…The Ismaili Imamat building is one of the most notable architectural gems in the city. And if that wasn’t enough, they have year-round open doors events that allow you to get a thorough glimpse at the magnificent work of architect Fumihiko Maki, together with the Canadian firm Moriyama & Teshima. In a word, this building is all about light. It is exquisite in its apparent simplicity and bathes in glorious sunlight that makes it sing. We finally got around to visit and photograph in January…and we just had a blast (I think they had to kick us out in the end because we just wouldn’t leave :D)
