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! (Also, don’t forget to check out our Instagram account here.)
International firm Snøhetta showcased its Snøhetta: Relations installation in Innsbruck, Austria; the angular landscape has served as everything from theatrical stage to gathering place.
Our #exhibition “Snøhetta: Relations” in Innsbruck, Austria, still runs until October 7. If you are around, don’t miss the chance to stop by the AUT. The pictures show impressions of the social landscape being used in a variety of ways, be it as a stage for a play of the Innsbruck School of Drama or simply as a meeting point for people. Watch out for the highlights of the exhibition coming up in September! More information on snohetta.com/news and aut.cc! #sociallandscape #architecture #snøhetta #innsbruck #austria #takeabreak
We couldn’t resist: here’s some feline Instagram love from Amsterdam-based UNStudio.
L.A.-based Oyler Wu Collaborative teased its next project, a large steel structure that will soon be powder coated.
Last but not least, also New York–based Steven Holl Architects furnished these fresh photos from its Sliced Porosity Block – Raffles City Chengdu project.
New images from Xi Chen and his Shenzhen University students highlight the dramatic interplay between light and material over the course of an afternoon at Sliced Porosity Block – Raffles City in Chengdu, China. Reflecting pools in the sprawling micro-urban plaza act as skylights to the shopping precinct below, casting soft dappled natural light onto passers by. At the end of the tour, The Light Pavilion by Lebbeus Wood quietly began to glow, illuminating and activating the plaza into the night. | #slicedporosityblock #lightpavilion #chengdu #china #lebbeuswoods #stevenholl #stevenhollarchitects
