The idea of transforming architecture from the concepts used in visual arts strongly began with the avant-gardes, where architecture was defined in terms of space, air and perception. From then on, the evolution of photography/visual arts and architecture has remained extremely closed, and sometimes even creating some confusion in understanding the borders between them. Since the appearance of film and movies, ›reproduction‹ of reality has become a characteristic of modern civilization. It is obviously a straight relationship between the development of photography in the early modern architecture and the way both disciplines have walked together till today.
