’s Biennial of the Americas has invited artists and architects from across the Americas to participate in the second edition of Draft Urbanism: a citywide exhibition that examines the evolving relationship we have with our cities. This year, four architects – plan:b arquitectos (), Pezo von Ellrichshausen (Chile), June14 Meyer-Grohbrügge&Chermayeff (New York/Berlin), and Alex Schweder (New York) – were commissioned to each design and build a large-scale installation that address site-specific urban challenges and key planning issues presently facing downtown Denver.

With urban challenges ranging from Denver’s over abundance of surface parking lots to the effects of an 8-lane thoroughfare that splits the downtown core, these four installations aim to portray a deep understanding of the city’s history while proposing innovative ways in which art can address our urban future.

Read on to learn about the installations and view a short film for each by Cristobal Palma.

Cristobal Palma Filmmaker

After his architecture studies at London’s Architectural Association School of Architecture (AA), Cristobal Palma worked as an assistant in London for a couple years, a time where he honed his photography skills. After this experience he took a more independent route working for some of the best architects in Chile and most renowned publications in the world.

As you may have noticed, since last year we’ve featured a series of Architecture Videos by Palma, the latest of his artistic endeavours that enable us to experience the projects in a different way. Considering this type of media offers a completely new range of opportunities for both architects and publications, we think it’s worth getting to know Palma and his professional journey incorporating audio-visual elements to the representation of architectural projects. The video above, Cristobal’s first completed video and now published online for the first time, presents the España Library in -, one of the most iconic buildings of this city’s renovation.

Architecture can be experienced in several ways, from writings to a travel, but so far it has been the main medium to transmit this experience. At ArchDaily we’ve had the chance to work with some of the world’s best photographers (amateur and pros), and in this section we present you more about their work and thoughts.

This time we present you Cristobal Palma (@CPalmaPhoto on Twitter, and Facebook), who has been featured several times at ArchDaily with his work that not includes architecture  but also urban and documentary photography, which appears in media such as The New York Times, Monocle, Wallpaper, among others.

Back to the “experience”, Cristobal has been experimenting with video, exploring an enhanced experience that allows us to see architecture in a different, dynamic way. Take for example our recent feature about the Clifftop House in Maui by Dekleva Gregoric Arhitekti, in which the combination of video + text + drawings offers us another experience.

You can watch more videos by Cristobal Palma here. Full interview:

1. When and how did you start photographing architecture?

I started shooting architecture as a student at the Architectural Association and then I learned a bit more about the profession working as an assistant to Sue Barr. After working for Sue I slowly started to work independently for small practices in London and Santiago and for magazines.
