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.)

OMA’s European Instagram account teased its nearly-complete Lab City at the Université Paris-Saclay—see their account for more pictures.



We’re not sure if this is ArandaLasch’s drone or not, but either way, the firm was there to capture this flying machine drift toward the sunset.

It’s what it wanted.

3XN revealed this design for a children’s hospital that will feature both solar panels and vegetation on its roof, along with what appears to be some very colorful cladding.


Last but not least, Cooper Robertson gave The Architect’s Newspaper a nice shout-out for our coverage of their Las Vegas streetscape design (thank you!). Read how this project is part of the city’s big gamble on sports, conventions, and leisure.
