Architectural photographer Marc Goodwin has recently shot the second collection of his “ultra-marathon of photoshoots” – in London. Following his unique insight into the spaces occupied by Nordic architectural offices (based in Oslo, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Helsinki), Goodwin has turned his lens to a broad collection of practices in the British capital, captured in just seven days. From Zaha Hadid Architects’ former school to Foster + Partner’s monumental studios on the banks of the River Thames, here are a series of surprising places that architectural offices call home.
