Synopsis: With Skies of Concrete, Austrian architectural photographer Gisela Erlacher explores a fascinating subject for urbanization—our ability to live, work, and play in what might seem like the most inhospitable of places. Erlacher had long been fascinated with the ways existing structures are modified to meet new transport needs, but a house wedged between two bridges in her native Vienna inspired a more extensive exploration of the leftover spaces. Erlacher traveled to China, Britain, and the Netherlands, capturing exquisite photographs of bridges, viaducts, and multistory highways, which focus specifically on the vacant and disused spaces and situations created by their construction. Beneath and between these structures, we find housing, parking, and storage, but also skate parks, tea houses, and food stalls in varying shades of legality.

Lavishly illustrated and featuring essays by landscape architect Lilli Licka and art historian Peter Lodermeyer, Gisela Erlacher—Skies of Concrete presents a powerful picture of the designed urban environment and the broader condition of contemporary society.

About the Author: Gisela Erlacher is an architectural and landscape photographer based in Vienna. Lilli Licka is an architect and cofounder of the firm KoseLicka Landscape Architecture in Vienna. She is professor of landscape architecture at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna. Peter Lodermeyer is an art historian and a freelance writer, curator, and critic.

Book Description Park Books. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Gisela Erlacher: Skies of Concrete, Gisela Erlacher, Lilli Licka, Peter Lodermeyer, After a degree in psychology and studies in camera and cinematography at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna, Gisela Erlacher has turned to photography entirely. For more than twenty years, she has been working on contemporary architecture and on topics related to urban and suburban space. For her recent project Skies of Concrete she travelled to China, Britain, the Netherlands and to parts of her home country Austria. The images show bridges: elevated roads in cities, viaducts, entangled lanes of expressway intersections. Yet Erlacher's interest is neither on the function of bridges nor on their nature as symbols for communication or mobility. She directs her gaze at the spaces that the crossing of a transport route causes to open up as a specific area within the urban fabric or in the countryside. She focuses on absurd situations that can occur when existing structures are drastically changed by building a bridge or when dead spaces beneath bridges are functionalised in one form or another. This new book features some forty of Erlacher's striking photographs, complemented by essays on her work and the spaces she has captured in her images. Bookseller Inventory # B9783906027920
