Watch the 'Look Up' Video

Before even beginning to design, architects look up. It’s the very first step in envisioning what could be. An architect’s unique perspective and approach to his or her work inspires us all. We have only to look up to see the contributions of architects present in our everyday lives. Look up and be inspired. Take a photo of the architecture that inspires you and post it on social media with #ilookup to join the community.

You and Your Architect provides guidance on how to establish and benefit from those relationships.
