Each week, we tap into Dwell's Instagram community to bring you the most captivating design and architecture shots of the week.

Architecture student @christineevi captured a quiet moment in front of Prada Marfa, located 26 miles outside of Marfa, Texas. Built in 2005, the permanent sculpture was designed by Berlin-based artists Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset, and was realized by architects Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello. Made up of adobe bricks, plaster, MDF, and an aluminum frame, it continues to bring together art, architecture, and fashion in a desert area that has become known for its unique art culture.

Though the structure lacks a real door, the two large windows are filled with actual shoes and bags by Prada.
