Frozen in time

Sto Group launches its 2014 programme at its Clerkenwell showroom in London in March with an exhibition of the charity Arcaid Images’ Architectural Photography Award winners. The show will be the first of the group’s new ‘Werkstatt’ events, a German word paying homage to the eponymous 19th Viennese art and architecture movement. No surprise, then, to see Tim Van de Velde’s photo of Peter Zumthor’s Bruder Klaus Kapelle making it onto the walls as a prizewinner, but it does beg the question whether the truly iconic 2007 building can ever make a bad photo. Classically photogenic, it would look good wrapped in a bin bag – a bit like Kate Moss. Well, that’s the organ-grinder vindicated – pop to the show to gauge the skill of the monkey.
