over the past year, photographer marc goodwin has visually documented the architectural offices of some of the world’s biggest firms. from london to beijing, goodwin has gone inside a range of studios, each with their own distinct aesthetic and working environment. the ongoing series offers a rare and private look at the workspaces of established architecture practices, including MAD architects, renzo piano building workshop, and david chipperfield architects.

goodwin, who runs photography studio archmospheres, began shooting the studios as a way to understand how they differentiate between each countries and continents. the spaces include a number of renovated structures, as well as purpose-built facilities. more than 100 MAD employees operate from inside a former printing works, while foster + partners’ riverside HQ was built by the firm in 1990, and forms the lower three storeys of a mixed-use development.

marc goodwin manages archmospheres with mathieu fiol — who shot the paris studios alongside goodwin — and cecilia galera. through an ‘attention to atmosphere’, the team works to restore a sense of place that they say is lacking in the majority of commercial photography. read on for a selection of archmospheres’ photography to date, as goodwin continues to document the working environments of architecture’s biggest names.
