About “Urban Nature” Photo Series
Nils Clauss’s “Urban Nature” series, awarded the 1st Prize for the EUROPEAN ARCHITECTURAL PHOTOGRAPHY PRIZE in 2011, captures the evolving urban landscape of Seoul, South Korea. With approximately 80% of its population living in urban areas, Seoul reflects the challenges of urban space merging on a large scale. The series explores the redefinition of the compact city concept. Landscape intertwines with the urban, blurring borders between urban and rural spaces. Witness the architectural aftermath of massive suburbanization, transforming the city’s peripheries into a new rural-urban space.
