David Sundberg’s photographs The Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park appear in ArchDaily. The project, designed by Cook + Fox Architects, is the first commercial high-rise to achieve LEED Platinum certification. Irina Vinnitskaya writes that “the design and high performance of this building is intended to set a new standard for commercial construction and for the office-work environment. By focusing on ways to emphasize daylight, fresh air and a connection to the outdoors, the architects redefine the parameters of the skyscraper as more than a glass box.”

David also worked on this video of the project with Ryan Browne of Cook+Fox:

We are glad to see that ArchDaily has posted the Esto Video Reel.
Architectural photography combines journalism, craftsmanship and art. Now with video, the Esto photographers expand their experience in documenting architecture to include motion and the passage of time. With carefully considered points of view, their footage explains the richness and variety of inhabited spaces and of buildings in context.
Regardless of the medium, the photographer’s responsibility remains unchanged: to capture and convey the nature of architecture. We consider video a complement to still photography. The view may pan over a scene; there may be movement within the frame itself. The images flow in a lively sequence that seems to match our hurried world.
Conventional photographs allow the viewer to explore each image. In a glance, one can see the basic content. Then, with more time, one can identify various layers of meaning. Further investigation can reveal what’s beneath the surface. The viewer realizes that the image is a selected piece of reality: one sees what’s in front of the lens and can infer what’s been omitted.
The new Esto reel includes clips by Jeff Goldberg, David Sundberg and Albert Vecerka. There are time-lapse elements and video footage shot from the ground, from neighboring buildings and from the air. The reel was prepared by Frederick King of Fountainhead Transmedia.

At Esto we are excited to announce that we are now working with moving images to describe architecture and the passage of time.
To see video and time-lapse images that augment conventional descriptions of space and time, take a look at the short reel we’ve prepared.
With energy and liveliness, these clips by Jeff Goldberg, David Sundberg and Albert Vecerka use moving images to describe architecture.
The material was filmed in New York and in Tokyo, from the ground and in the air.
