Photographer Marc Goodwin goes behind the scenes of Stuttgart architecture studios

Architectural photographer Marc Goodwin has photographed behind the scenes at 11 Stuttgart-based architecture studios in the latest of a three-part series documenting architecture offices in Germany.

In the Stuttgart edition of his documentation of worldwide architecture studios, Goodwin has photographed studios including Blocher Partners, Se\arch Freie Architekten and Laboratory for Visionary Architecture.

The layouts and decoration across the studios vary, from Asp Architekten's colourful and brightly painted walls and pipes to SCOPE Architekten's work areas organised along a window-lined wall of the former office space.

Goodwin spoke to Dezeen about his experience photographing the studios.

"I can't say enough about the kindness of the team at Se\arch in Stuttgart," Goodwin told Dezeen.

"Backing up slowly and carefully to fit them into frame, I didn't see a plinth behind me and would you believe I knocked a model off it?" he continued.

"This has never happened before as models are like treasures in a museum, but I was so focussed on the team at work that I didn't see what was behind me."

"I probably shouldn't admit to this as people will think twice before letting me into their offices now, but let me assure readers it was a case of once bitten twice shy," said Goodwin.

Goodwin founded his architectural photography studio Archmospheres in 2004 and has photographed over 200 architectural studios across the world providing glimpses into the interiors of typically unseen workspaces.

Goodwin and his studio Archmospheres have photographed architecture studios including Madrid-based architect Andrés Jaque's 12-person office, Paris-based architect Renzo Piano's Building Workshop and Mexico City-based architect Frida Escobedo's office in a former residential building.
