Beyond the Building Blocks: Collection of Architectural Photography

March 13th, 2012

Our lives are passively impacted architecturally on a daily basis. To the point where we are virtually desensitized and often do not even take notice of these magnificent architectural structures. We drift in and out of these buildings, pass by them as we move to our destinations, and yet the buildings seem to be blocked from our view. We do not often take time to examine and appreciate the artistry of them.

Both inside and out, so many of the buildings around us possess an uncanny ability to inspire us if we let them in. When we begin to look beyond just the building blocks and metal frames that tend to bring these structures to life, we can see them in entirely new ways. Luckily there are many talented photographers who are more than adept at not only viewing architectural structures this way, but in capturing them so that we, the viewers, can see this in them as well.

Below is a collection of all manners of architectural photography that is sure to inspire anyone who comes across it. Perhaps you will even leave with a deeper appreciation of the buildings in your daily life.

    Wow really nice pictures. I have been at Rivington Pike Tower and I must say, that it looks even better on the photo than in real life :)
