The Belgian artist Filip Dujardin specializes in something he calls “imaginary architecture.”
It’s fascinating: he takes an image that would otherwise be nondescript and something at which we might not otherwise take a second glance, and he changes it into something spectacular and unique and fantastical.
His artwork is fun to look at.
It gives you something to ponder.
And as a prior student of architecture, it sparks fire within my imagination.

The Spanish street artist Mesa traveled to the Sahara for an event called Artifariti 2011. He participated in this art project while living with Saharawi families in refugee camps.
His artwork is amazing, full of emotion, and striking against the stark desert background.
LIKEarchitects is a design studio that reinterprets everyday objects to create art. And architecture.
At the same time.
It was formed in 2008 in Portugal by Diogo Aguiar, João Jesus, and Teresa Otto. Their first project was a temporary bar constructed of illuminated IKEA storage boxes. Glowing boxes….. It’s architecture, but it’s art, too. Not just easy on the eyes, this type of architecture enlivens all the senses.
And it looks cool, too.
Check out some of their awesome work:
