Focus on Architecture: Story Behind the Photo

We will be highlighting winning photographs from the 2010 Focus on Architecture competition during the next few weeks, along with the story behind the photo. This week’s photo was taken by Tais Melillo at the East Harlem School and was selected as a winner in the Exteriors category. The judges liked the contrast of architectural style between the Edward Hopper-esque brick building on the left and Peter Gluck and Partners’ design, as well as the clean lines.

It was the very beginning of our tour of the East Harlem School.  Our excellent tour guide was an architect from the company that built the school, who explained the concept of the building and the school itself.  While admiring the modern façade, the contrast between old and modern was what jumped at my eyes.
