Where better to see what inspires today’s architects than their Instagram feeds? Or watch their ideas grow from a pencil sketch into bricks and mortar.

In our edit of architects you should follow on Instagram, we’ve included titans of the design world – those with the legions of followers you would expect. But we’ve also listed smaller practices who’ll take you inside spaces you wouldn’t normally reach, and make you see the world with fresh eyes.

Follow these people and your daily commute will never be the same…
