Take a CLOSER look at the image. It represents an architectural model (look for the tiny people ) of everyday things as buildings/structures. Another superb entry at the show Beauty-Cooper Hewitt Museum Design Triennial. This excerp is from SCALE MODELS, ARCHITECTURE IS EVERYWHERE, 2015.
Designed by Sou Fujimoto Architects the series consists of numerous materials – wood, stainless steel, sponge, ceramic, aluminum, plastic, paper, fabric and dried flowers. Series shows the architectural possibility in everyday found objects and materials which becomes intriguing structures when placed on pedestals with tiny human figures.
This was my favorite in the exhibition because it shows how the seemingly ordinary can inspire you to think beyond the obvious. It doesn’t always take the spectacular to make something new, just the limits of our imagination. See additional images below.
