Five Ways To Appreciate Architecture At Home
In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, it may seem difficult to feel connected to the world around us. At Histoury, one of our goals is to celebrate architectural heritage in communities through visiting historical homes; however, with stay-at-home orders across the nation, it’s impossible to safely tour the beautiful buildings we love. Today, we wanted to offer some five alternatives to architectural appreciation that you can do in your home.
- Connect with architects and designers virtually through social media! Architect Magazine recently shared this article with a list of 15 wonderful Instagram accounts you can follow to be inspired by architecture around the world. Scroll safely from the comfort of your couch!
- Watch webinars and interviews about architecture on YouTube. Some of our favorites are De Zeen, Architectural Digest, and Sam-E Studio.
- Read about how COVID-19 will change architectural design in this Dwell article.
- For more dedicated lovers of architecture, learn about the principles of architecture in the free online Harvard course called “The Architectural Imagination.”
- Watch the Netflix docuseries called “The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes.” Each episode is roughly 45 minutes, and each episode travels to a new area to explore architectural masterpieces.
