About building and landmark imagery

Building and landmark imagery remind us of the staggering feats of engineering that humankind is capable of. One look at world famous landmarks such as the Great Wall of China, Pyramid of Giza, or Colosseum of Rome can inspire a sense of wonder in the viewer. Building imagery can also reflect the more familiar structures that many people engage with on a regular basis. Whether you want a building logo to add to your new business website, a school building icon for your next teacher-related newsletter, or anything in between, Shutterstock is sure to have the building and landmark image to take your project to the next level.

  • Romantics: Want to be whisked away from the humdrum of modern life each time you see your computer wallpaper? Try using a photo of a fairy-tale castle. The 11th century Chillon Castle of Switzerland, built on an island on the edge of Lake Geneva, is sure to cause viewers to swoon.
  • Adventurers: Itching for adventure? Try a photo from Siem Reap in Cambodia. The jungle-set Ta Prohm temple features trees growing up out of the ruins. It was actually used as a location in the film Tomb Raider. Adventurous indeed!
  • Spiritual types: Longing for a sacred, silent space? Perhaps an image of the stunning stained-glass windows of Notre Dame can offer you a midday reprieve.
  • Book lovers: Love nothing more than to be surrounded by books? The whimsical Livraria Lello in Portugal may be right up your alley…your Diagon Alley, that is. The hundred-year-old bookstore is said to have inspired J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series.
