I have recently completed an ultra-marathon of photo-shoots: 28 architectural offices in 28 days, in four capital cities. It was the Nordic tour normally taken by cruise-ship: Oslo, Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Helsinki. I was seeking to not only shoot a wide variety of offices, but to better understand architectural offices and how they differ between each country. To do this, I set out to answer some basic questions. What do architects offices look like? Does each have a distinct atmosphere? Does that reflect something about each company? Or are they all just array of impersonal white boxes?
