Photo Essay by Corey Roberts
Corey Roberts describes himself as an artist who just happens to use photographic equipment & believes in having a good time while doing something he loves. He has a passion for life and good design and is in fact a former Architect. We were really pleased to get him on board for the production of episode 3 of Density by Design at Bowden and had a great time with him.
It was a difficult challenge for Corey as the site was still very much under construction. In his interview with Density by Design presenter Dr Josh Byrne before the shoot began Corey said:
Corey said about the experience of being a part of the series:
Corey has selected six of his photographs from the shoot that tell the story of Bowden from his point of view.
The layered brickwork from an existing structure immediately drew me in.
It’s the street where communication is a sustainable outcome for all.
Reflections from the sky above create a softness with the glass landscape below.
Staggered facades allow the surrounding natural environment to be brought inside.
‘Leftovers’ from its industrial past create beautiful symmetry.
Clean lines and opposing textures create interesting and vibrant spaces for residents to linger.
So what are Corey’s thoughts on the movement towards greater density and Bowden’s place in that?
