UPDATE: The news has now been confirmed. David Chipperfield Architects has been officially selected to convert the US Embassy near London's Grosvenor Square into a "world-class" 137-room hotel, after the building's current occupants relocate. According to a new report from AJ, restaurants, retail, a spa and a 1000-person ballroom will also be included in the design. The first images of the project have now been released. 

As reported by the Architects' Journal, David Chipperfield Architects has been selected in an invited competition to remodel the US Embassy in London, once the building's current occupants move into the new embassy building currently being constructed in the Nine Elms. The existing building, a Grade-II listed design by Eero Saarinen dating back to 1960, is set to become a hotel after developers Qatari Diar purchased it in 2009.

This course is a thorough introduction to architectural photography through theory and practice, by professional architectural photographers. It will give you the essential conceptual and technical tools that will enable you to develop your practice, whether for a hobby or for business.

Photographs increasingly influence the way in which buildings are perceived around the world. It is said that today the photograph of a building –as opposed to the building itself- is its most widely consumed image. As architects understand the power of architectural photography, they become more and more interested in working closely with photographers. Simultaneously, an ever-growing number of photographers chooses architecture as an area within which to develop a personal artistic language as well as a business.
