#RiseAtIrving Instameet

On Saturday October 4th , 2014, the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas in Irving, TX invited instagrammers from the Dallas-Fort Worth area (@instaDFW) to capture stunning images of the building in an event they called #RiseAtIrving. As the sun rose over the hot, flat landscape of Northern Texas, the photographers, smartphones in tow, activated the building in unexpected ways that could only have come out of the unique combination of factors brought about by #RiseAtIrving, in a building designed for spontaneous outdoor interaction. The ICC is clad in 150 tons of perforated copper panels which extend to provide shade over break out spaces and plazas meant for informal gatherings. InstaDFW took advantage of it all, and they offer us a glimpse into the life of a building buzzing with creative energy at an unexpected time.
