Instagram is the perfect place to make people jealous of your beach holiday, to share pictures of puppies or show everyone what an amazing chef you are.
But many great architects and designers also show their inspiration and their work on their feed, which makes the whole thing much more interesting to me.
I'll show you my ten favourite inspirations:
1. Yuko Mouton
Yuko Mouton is a Japanese fashion designer, who is obsessed with the clean lines
and exaggerated angles, that inspire her collections.

2. Mauricio Tufino
Mauricio is collecting masterpieces of architecture from all ages, mostly from Spain and Mexico.

3. Bob Borson
Bob Borson is picturing the life of an architect (which is also the name of his blog). His photos
are a collection of sketches, site visits, modern architecture and family life.

4. Carlos Copertone
Carlos really likes his
concrete. With his love for symmetry, he composes great pictures of modern architecture.

This photographer from Paris seems to be
obsessed with patterns and rainbow colours. Throw in some glitter every now and then and you got me.

and London with beautiful fairy-tale-like pictures

Demond Meek is rocking Instagram's filters in his
“Slum Beautiful” project about St. Louis' forgotten houses.

8. Bjarke Ingels
One of my favourite architects is
capturing his life between site visits, models, drawings and skiing. This guy is awesome and we're gonna get married one day. He just doesn't know yet.

These guys seriously freak me out, but I
can't stop looking. For the perfect aerial view, they climb the tallest building and take the obligatory dangling-feet shot. Hello, vertigo!

lifesansbldgs is mixing up
pictures from is travels, sketches and architectural drawings to capture his life on a “recovering architect and accidental historian”.
