Bjarke goes west and other updates from the architects of Instagram

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.)

SO-IL’s Florian Idenburg was in Shanghai approving of Gensler’s aptly-named Shanghai Tower.

Olson Kundig sent this update from Dornbirn, Áustria, where one of its employees is participating in a two-week Earthwork Building Workshop. The course is part of the firm’s traveling fellowship program.

David Adjaye was in Port of Spain, Trinidad and admiring the Hasely Crawford stadium, which was completed in 1982.

Bjarke Ingels found his way to the set of HBO’s Westworld—we think it’s the Melody Ranch in Santa Clarita, California—and that didn’t stop him from enjoying other uniquely West Coast diversions, like this high tech–styled dune buggy.


Next stop the Playa

Spanish architect Andrés Jaque re-grammed this glorious drawing from his Advanced Design Studio at Columbia’s GSAPP.

And while we’re on student work, Michael Speaks, dean of Syracuse University’s School of Architecture, was proud to show oodles of models and drawings produced by high school students during Syracuse’s summer architecture program.

The Art Institute of Chicago’s Zoë Ryan teased the upcoming exhibit Past Forward: Architecture and Design at the Art Institute, with exhibition design by Julia di Castri, visiting assistant professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Last but not least, WORKac Co-founder Dan Wood posted this preview of his firm’s contribution to the upcoming Chicago Architecture Biennial.
