Putting the art in architecture

There’s a wonderful gallery of photographs in the Guardian today, showcasing the winners of the Art in Building photography contest run by the Chartered Institute of Building.

The results show buildings, or bits of buildings, or views from buildings, from right around the world. Some are incredible because of the buildings themselves, others because of the photographers’ composition or ways of looking at the built environment. All are surprisingly beautiful.

My own favourite is probably the promenade shelter in Bexhill (above), because of the strange, Mobius-strip like angles of the building, and the driftwood-style material. But have a look at the rest and see which ones you like best.
