Focus on Architecture: Story Behind the Photo

Today’s winning photo, one of many from the 2010 Focus on Architecture competition, was taken by Julia Mehoke at UrbanGlass glass working studio in Red Hook, Brooklyn and was selected as a winner in the People category. The judges enjoyed the way Julia captured the feeling of heat emanating from the furnace as well as the behind-the-scenes look, which is what OHNY Weekend is all about.

This was my first year attending Open House New York and I spent a lot of time researching the many participating sites and making a list of all the places I wanted to visit, to make sure I wouldn’t leave any out. I ended up going to three. The first was Urban Glass – I was impressed by how effortlessly they worked with such a fragile material and thought the bright furnaces in the industrial setting made for a great photo opportunity. Hopefully next year I’ll make it around to see a few other places.
