Play with symmetry & patterns!

Look up, look down, look all around and you will find that intricate, intentional or unintentional symmetry and patterns can be found everywhere. Within one building alone are between adjacent building. Make this fascinating features stand out and play with the way the viewer will interpret your chosen location.

Don’t be afraid to use people!

While buildings and structure should always be the main feature in your #Architecture2020 submissions son’t be afraid to do something different and also use people as your subjects. A good way to do this is to show them enjoying the space or to emphasise the size and scale of the building. We recommend making sure (where possible) that the subject is dressed in colors that contrast with the main subject matter in order to stand out just that little bit more.

Research your destination beforehand!

To take an amazing shot of a building or structure it is necessary to know it and it’s surrounds well. If you will capture it from outside, what time does the sun set and rise? What colors in the sky will complement this structure or give the desired effect or reflection? When indoors, at what time will natural light shine through certain parts of the building? If possible doing a few visits to the sites to test out all the angles can help you save time and make sure you catch other detials.
