Last winter I decided to take an architectural photography class at my alma mater, the School of Visual Arts. The class gave me a new appreciation for straight lines, and I have fallen even more in love with architecture and interior design. When I was asked to photograph Architizer's A+ awards, I totally geeked out at the opportunity. The event is described as "the oscars of architecture" and the industry leaders walked the red carpet and took to the stage to collect their awards. Following the awards ceremony, the night ended with an after party at the Top of the Standard.
