Ever since photos stopped having to be developed, shooting images from the hip has become a kind of way of taking notes: It doesn’t get lost and can serve as proof or a source of inspiration for the memory. And can be taken using a Smartphone or digital camera. So we wanted to find out: What lodged in the minds of architects and designers while they browsed around this year’s Venice architecture Biennale, the Giardini, the Arsenale or the exhibitions in the city? We asked some of them to cast a glance at their photographed notes, choose six, and comment on their impressions.
