Design Inspiration: Nightvision

Nightvision is the result of director Luke Shepard’s travels across Europe, capturing a variety of some of the most stunning structures across the continent to date. The video was made through thousands of photos strung together in post production with the goal to inspire appreciation for these architectural masterpieces.
