Designed by Matthias Sauerbruch and Louisa Hutton, the GSW Headquarters building is the tallest one constructed in the city after the Berlin Wall was torn down. What makes this architecture – an assembly of five separate volumes – so unique is the design of a system of polychrome curtains used to screen sunlight. As if colour itself were a building material, these shades of pink give the façade a curvilinear and sensual rhythm and seem to combine with each other, side by side, in a chromatic scale that evokes women’s favourite accessory: make-up.
The French photographer Eric Dufour was born in 1965. He developed a passion for photography at a very early age and took advantage of his numerous trips to Asia, the Middle East and Europe to capture different architectural details in his pictures. He officially entered the circuit of artistic photography in 2006 and since then has developed careful research into modern architecture, showcasing the graphic lines that fill European capitals, the main destination of his ongoing travels. For three consecutive years (2012, 2013, 2014) Dufour exhibited at the Salon de la Photo, an important rendezvous that attracts professional photographers and photography buffs to Paris annually. In 2013 he was one of the leading figures at the collective show entitled Graphitude at the Galerie Photostage in Lyon. The following year he starred at Les rencontres du Rivatoria, an event organized in Jassans – Riottier dal Photoclub Rivatoria in collaboration with the Fédération Photographique de France. Over the years Dufour has published widely in important international periodicals and has participated in a number of competitions, winning prestigious awards and gaining recognition. In 2013, he won first prize in Digital Colors – Jyske Mesterskaber (Denmark) and in 2014, after placing third in the Urban Photo Contest in Paris and second in the European Eisa Maestro Awards in Berlin, he won first prize in the “Architecture” category for Les Photographies de l’année (France).
