Hi,

please check out this link : http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Live/Knowledgebase/Article/View/196/0/when-do-i-need-a-model-or-property-release

Authors do not need one for public property, such as government buildings (although you may run into problems just from photographing/videoing them, for security reasons!). But for images of private property — and particularly of objects that are closely identified with specific people — photographers are urged to get a release.

The case you’re bringing up is that of landmark architecture, and as you can read through the KB article I linked, a PR might be recommended.

That being said, I’m not the best advisor on PR matters, so I kindly ask you to open a ticket with support here : http://support.envato.com as those are replied by more informed people :)

Thank you!
