Covering everything from the definition of a volute to a look at Eero Saarinen’s Dulles international airport, Doug Patt’s “How to Architect” videos offer 15 second glimpses into the world of architecture.  Posted on his Instagram account daily, each video explores one fact related to architecture. At the end of each week, the facts are compiled into a longer video on YouTube. 

Check out a selection of videos after the break.
