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!

nARCHITECTS shared this pic of members of the Chicago Multicultural Dance school using the firm’s recently-renovated Navy Pier as a stage.

Lorcan O’Herlihy posted this vibrant time lapse of the firm’s collaboration with artist Diana Thater; the installation is part of the Artists of Color exhibit at the The Underground Museum in Los Angeles.

Daniel Libeskind shared this photo of the under-construction Modern Art Center in Vilnius; get a peek at what the approximately 33,000-square-foot museum will look like at Libeskind’s website.
