アメリカ各地の都市の近縁には孤立した建物が一軒家として存在することがあります。
このような建築物はどういう経緯でここに建てられたのでしょうか。David Schalliolは名門シカゴ大学の社会学部で都市構造の研究をする傍ら、これらの建築物を撮影して世界各地で発表している写真家です。都市の拡張あるいは衰退に伴ってこれらの建築物が生まれてくる背景について研究を進めており、また写真家としてもReview Santa Feなどで高い評価を受けるなど優れた活動を行っています。ひっそりと建つ建物は都市の歴史を背景にとどめながら、美しいたたずまいで私たちを魅了します。この作品集では、アメリカ各地において彼が収集した数多くの建築物をご覧いただき、孤立した建築物の生成の過程を検証します。

 

The Isolated Building Studies are the visual confluence of my interests in urban dynamism, socioeconomic inequality and photography. By using uniform composition in photographs of Chicago buildings with no neighboring structures, I hope to draw attention to new ways of seeing the common impact of divergent investment processes on urban communities.

Isolated buildings are particularly useful for the exploration of neighborhood transformation and its social correlates because they are immediately recognized as unusual. As urban buildings, their form illustrates their connection with adjacent structures: vertical, boxy, an architecture confined by palpably limited parcels. When their neighboring buildings are missing, a tension emerges: the urban form clashes with the seemingly suburban, even rural setting. Thoughtfully engaging the landscape requires further investigation to resolve this tension: Why is this building isolated? It is from this fundamental friction that the Isolated Building Studies launches.
