Structurally FOUND

On Saturday I stumbled across @StructureFOUND on twitter and thence to  Structurally found is a photographic competition being held over the OpenHouse weekend of 20/21st September.  The idea is to instagram or tweet any number of photos each showing one or more of the nine structural forms listed on the website with the appropriate Hashtag.  The photos have to by you but don’t have to have been taken in London or been taken this weekend.  All the rules are on the website.  Needless to say being a) a construction professional and b) a keen photographer… I was in.

So over the weekend I have been submitting entries and as a result have hooked up with a few more like minded built environment liking tweeters. It has been great going through my photo library looking for suitable entries so I decided to put them all in a blog so you can see them all together.  All photos open to bigger versions in new tabs.  I will add the photos I enter throughout the weekend and update the blog – so check back later!
