RAWVISION studio was co-founded by Liang Dong and Hedy Zhang in 2020. Dong and Hedy have many years’ experience working at worldwide well-known architecture studios as architect and project architect before they became full-time architectural photographers. The architects ‘background brings them a very sharp and unique perspective on architecture and spaces, and the cameras and lenses are now the tools for them to document the buildings and the space around them. The word RAW has the meaning of origin and nature, which is also the philosophy of the RAWVISION studio – to find and express the most original beauty of architecture, and to record and transmit the most essential elements of space, people and environment, as well as the connection between them and the space.
In the philosophy of the RAWVISION studio, architecture is not just a container or a simple combination of spaces but has its own life. From the beginning of construction to the final demolition, with the flow of time, the architecture experiences various stories and scenes during the use and transformation, these have also become a part of the memory of many people. Each different stages of each building are worth recording. The building is not a container of cold Material, but also has different emotional changes according to the changes of environment and weather. The happiness in sunny days, depression in rainy days, vitality in spring, and romance in autumn. Different people and ways of using the building also affect the building itself. RAWVISION studio is also trying to show the beauty of architecture at different times and its humanistic property through its own works.
