From Bjarke in Edinburgh to Adjaye in Mogadishu: Where top architects were this week

At The Architect’s Newspaper, we’re plain addicted to Instagram. Sure, we love seeing Brutalist concrete through “Inkwell” or “Ludwig” filters, but there’s also no better place to see where architects are getting their inspiration, how they’re documenting the built environment, and where they’ve traveled of late.

Below, we bring you some of the best Instagrams of this past week! Like what you see? Let us know in the comments and we’ll do another similar post next week! (Also, don’t forget to check out our Instagram account here.)

Iwan Baan stopped by Villarrica National Park in Chile; the park was designed by Chilean architect Germán del Sol.

Both Bjarke Ingels and Sou Fujimoto were in Edinburgh, Scotland—perhaps because they’re competing to design the Ross Pavilion, located the foot of the city’s iconic castle?
