Corrugated-iron-hut facade in Mauritania, one of von Schaewen’s many studies in architectural typologies
Respected architectural photographer Deidi von Schaewen isn’t one for letting the grass grow under her feet. Active since the 1960s and with no sign of hanging up her camera any time soon, Architonic caught up with the peripatetic image-maker to talk the changing value of architectural photography, the advent of digital imagery, and her love of mud huts.

The latest fair-going union of architecture and innovative material-processing technology is unveiled in Milan in the form of Architonic’s Concept Space V.
We’re back from Light+Building Frankfurt and Milan Design Week with a cartload of impressions and plenty of positive feedback. It wasn’t, it appears, just the fine weather making exhibitors on the ground happy. Things appear to be blossoming again after the fallow period of the last few years.
Milan Design Week marks the end of the spring fair season. So now’s a good time to take a look at some of the most memorable fair-stand architecture of the last few months, which was just as impressive as the products presented within in.
We’ve given our own passion for architecture and materials free expression, too, with our new Concept Space V, the result of a joint design competition with the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts.
Here’s what you’ll find in our April Newsletter:

Desalto’s latest products reveal themselves at turns as visitors pass through the ultra-clean stand space in Milan
Gone are the days when a standard-issue ‘booth’ was enough of a platform on which design manufacturers could present their latest products at trade fairs. The contemporary exhibition stand is as much a brand-marketing device as it is a product showcase. Look sharp. (by Simon Keane-Cowell)

The Obsidian Project: Revaluation mirror by Studio Drift
