Mies van der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles and Ray Eames—if you know architecture, you know these architects. And if you don’t, you’ve probably sat in one of their chairs before. The art of architecture can often be overlooked. Even though we walk down the streets surrounded by skyscrapers designed by great minds who first imagined these structures in their dreams, we don’t always consider the amount of love and care that goes into these designs—all you have to do is look up.
Balance, repetition, and rhythm are all design principles you know and use in your own design work—but did you know it’s applicable in the world of architecture, as well? That’s why architectural photos can be so appealing. Composition is just as necessary for a building as it is for a banner ad—and it translates into the photography. Which is why we’ve decided to round up some of the most visually appealing architecture snaps in our library. Try not to get too envious.
Have you ever appreciated the beauty of architecture before? Did you catch the presence of repetition, symmetry, balance, and any other design principles? That’s the beauty of art and design—its core principles transcend mediums. We have hundreds of photos like these for you to download from our stock photo library. What will you create with them?
