I was recently called on to capture the courtyard, rooftop deck and front elevation of a multi-family housing project in Berkeley, CA designed for Avalon by Gould Evans Architects - http://www.gouldevans.com.

I was excited about shooting the project because it’s both a podium building and new urbanist design. We were very fortunate to have such a clear sky to work with, you can even see the Golden Gate Bridge from the rooftop deck

I wanted to make the most of the location right next to the Berkeley Amtrack station. Lauren Maas, the architect of the project told me the train station and the motion were critical elements of the design as seen on this elevation. (Click image for larger)
