Architectural Photography in London – A Golden Era?

In my ten years as a commercial photographer and 4 years as a doctoral student/candidate/donquijote, I have never lived such a moment as this. London is suddenly a kind of mecca for the appreciation and understand of architectural photography. An exhibition at the Barbican is on together with an extraordinary gathering of talent at the RIBA: http://www.architecture.com/WhatsOn/September2014/ConstructingWorldsPhotographyandArchitectureintheModernAge.aspx
