Buildings take on a whole new guise when cloaked in a blanket of snow. It softens hard edges, hides the grime of the urban landscape and gives architecture a ghostly glow.

The white stuff is proving a bit thin on the ground (if non-existent) in most of its usual haunts this year but there are still some dazzling scenes to behold. Here’s an edit of some of our favourite buildings in the snow posted on Instagram in recent weeks.
