At a time during which our relationships to both private spaces and therefore the public realm are thrown hospitable question, what lessons can we learn from looking carefully at the planet around us? How can we better understand the places where we live—the histories that have shaped them; the social, economic, and political mechanisms that make them function as they are doing today; the communities they structure; their possibilities for the future? Can we learn to document our surroundings not only in terms of color, composition, and texture, but by thinking through their impacts and their potential to shape more healthy, just, and resilient communities?
We invite you to submit photographs, videos, or drawings amid short written observations about the spaces around you, with the goal of making a visible archive that captures the connection between society and therefore the built environment during this unprecedented time. The League will review, edit, and choose reports to be published initially on our Instagram account on a rolling basis and, eventually, on archleague.org and in our weekly newsletter.
Submissions must include:
- 3–10 photos (jpeg or png), OR 1 video (60-second limit; mp4 or mov), OR 1–10 drawings (jpeg or png)
- Accompanying text (750-character limit)
- One-sentence bio (100-character limit)
Images and videos should follow the specifications below:
- Square, landscape, or vertical format (no panoramic)
- Individual image files should not exceed 2MB
- Individual video files should not exceed 20MB
- Each filename should contain an image number and the submitter’s last name, following this format: “1_LastName”.
