Architectural photographer Christoph Musiol delves beyond capturing spaces in the physical realm to imagine a series of surreal reflective homes planted in the middle of an expansive lava desert. The AI-generated series titled ‘Mirror Houses in the Desert’ uses Midjourney to explore Musiol’s captivation with framing ‘exceptional buildings’ and experiencing the natural beauty of the landscape of Lanzarote. With abstracted volumes, geometric facades, and mirror-like elevations, the rendered structures seamlessly blend into their encompassing arid environment while engaging in a captivating interplay of light and textures in dialogue with the natural elements.

an ai-generated interplay of light, shadow, and form

 

‘Mirror Houses in the Desert’ unveils an abstract and surreal fusion of architectural design and the raw beauty of the desert, drawing inspiration from natural landscapes and the photography works of Christoph Musiol. The Berlin-based photographer looks to his frequent travels to the island of Lanzarote and fuses his observations and experiences with his creative visual language that is characterized by a particular focus on capturing light, shadow, form, and geometry.

 

Likewise, the AI-generated images create a new type of architecture where light, shadow, and reflections are captured to become a fabric of the structure. As the time of day changes and the hues of the sky and sunlight transform, the Mirror Houses capture and reflect the elements of the arid landscape, the sky, and the sun rays, and appear to subtly emerge from the horizon.
