ingrid siliakus: paper architecture

working with paper, amsterdam-based artist ingrid siliakus creates miniature works of architecture with highly intricate details. the three-dimensional pieces incorporates the structural nature of a 90 degree angle to delineate, in a manner resembling pop-up books, a skyline, clusters of buildings, network of stairs, and more. the effect is often dizzying and evoke the aesthetic of M.C. escher with its orthogonal read. delicate yet solid in its build, some of the paper sculptures are capable of collapsing down into a two-dimensional pack.

  • Why do you provide misinformation? This is not architecture. These are fanciful images in paper that resemble built forms. Kind of like snowflakes you cut out as a kid. Architecture is something you actually can walk into and around.
    3d graphic….yes, architecture…..not even close.
