Today we’re taking a little trip to the Netherlands with the ever so wonderful Amsterdam based photographer Peter Tijhuis. Peter will be walking us through his shoot of The Hietland designed by La-Di-Da Architects who are based out of The Hague Area of the Netherlands. Peter has so much great insight for us, I’ll just let him take it away!
Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects has always been esteemed for their mammoth landmarks. All around the globe, their colossal beauties stretch into the sky. One of their particular designs that I love — The Salesforce Tower —stands 1,070 feet tall in downtown San Francisco. Who better to capture this sleek and sexy skyscraper than an architectural photographer who also calls San Francisco home, Jason O’Rear.
Peter Dixie is a wonderful architectural and landscape photographer who calls Shanghai home, and operates under the name LOTAN Studio. This week we are exploring his photographs of The Zentral Kitchen by Lukstudio.
The Zentral Kitchen is the first location for Shikaku — which strives to lessen the environmental impact of dining and food delivery.
The guys at Roehner + Ryan are much admired around here, not just because their photographs are off the wall gorgeous, but because they are such bulldogs for the architectural photography industry. Jason and Dan are great advocates for proper pricing, sharing knowledge, and lifting our little community.
Francis Dreis is my newest architectural photography crush, and it’ll be easy for you to see why after checking out this stellar set of images he crafted for Woods + Dangaran Architecture of their Clear Oak Drive project. Here you’ll find rich warm tones, dynamic light, and a strong inclusion of human element.
Today we’re checking out one of Dezeen’s 2020 longlist pieces, Su Vertical Nos Retiene.

Welcome to the ME Dubai Hotel at the Opus, designed by architectural legend Zaha Hadid! Taking us on a little ole visual tour today is Lisbon based architectural photographer Francisco Nogueira. Francisco photographed this project just days before COVID19 forced the borders to be shut down, and fortunately so, because this series is a masterpiece.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it another one hundred times; Brazil’s architectural photographers and the wide gamut of projects that they photograph are incredible. Today, Brazilian architectural photographer Nelson Kon is sharing his photographs of Fazenda Rio Verde — a massive coffee farm outside Saõ Palo — with us.
Today’s Project of the Week is a moody beauty coming at you from architectural photographer David Straight based out of Auckland, New Zealand. The Franklin Road House was designed by Jack Mckinney Architects with interiors by Katie Lockhart Studio and is a sublime space. David has a boatload of great insight into this project and the way he documented it, so I’ll let him take it away!
Shai masterfully shows off the punchy color contrast and graphic nature of this home. His compositions emphasize the rectilinear shapes and abundance of leading lines present throughout the space.
This week’s featured project comes to us from the Serpentine Lake in Hyde Park, London. In the summer of 2018, The London Mastaba — created by famed Christo and Jeanne-Claude — made its debut to parkgoers as part of the Serpentine Galleries, then disappeared 3 months later. Architectural photographer and Mass Collective cofounder Francesco Russo who splits his time between London and Venice made some beautiful photographs of this installation and sent them our way after the unfortunate passing of Christo early this summer.
If this Project of the Week by Art Sanchez doesn’t make you want to take a Spanish holiday, I’m not sure what will. His photographs of Villa Marola by Osvaldo Luppi-Olarq in Mallorca, Spain have had me day dreaming all morning of sitting by the pool at this incredibly geometric, open air concept, contemporary build.
When Chicago based husband and wife duo Ryan and Sarah Miller of Miller + Miller Architectural Photography submitted in their project of the Chicago Skyway Canopy Plaza, I opened it and yelled out “YES!” Behold, the sexiest photographs of a toll plaza you’ve ever seen!
Photographing civil architecture and infrastructure isn’t always glamorous, plus it demands a ton of logistics and risks.
This week’s featured project takes us on an exciting trip to the city of Sadra in Fars, Iran! Here, we’ll check out the Green Land Convention Center’s Café Gallery by architect Mehrdad Iravanian and photographed by our new friend, architectural photographer Navid Atrvash.
Interestingly, for being in “The Cradle of Civilization,” Sadra is a fairly new city, and was established in the 1990s.
Hey world, meet Natalia Robert, a wonderful architect turned interiors photographer based out of sunny Southern California, by way of — well — all over the planet! Not only is her work catalog-esque, beautifully lit and styled sublimely, but Natalia is at her heart, an educator. Founder of The Grove Studio, she has taken on the beautiful mission of getting more Women of Color involved in Architectural Photography, which is frankly a field lacking in diversity.
This week’s featured project is courtesy of Ottawa based architectural photographer Justin Van Leeuwen. His photographs of Ossington House document a custom home renovation by Sheshko Construction and Colizza Bruni. I was introduced to JVL’s work by Barry Mackenzie, and know that you guys are going to love the crisp colors and gorgeous light that Justin harnesses in this project!
From the stairs that Rocky Balboa ran in his training montage, to homes of Hollywood celebrities, to some of the most iconic public projects in the world, Black and African American architects have designed many of the architectural icons and integral buildings that we see and use every day.
This week’s featured project hails all the way from Abu Dhabi by Dubai based architectural photographer Catalin Marin. Catalin shares his work of the Abu Dhabi New York University campus and was kind enough to tell us a bit about the unique architecture as well as his approach to photographing the University.
