Fictions

Belgian photographer Filip Dujardin has created a series of “photographs” of sometimes seemingly plausible, but totally fictional, buildings.  I would love to own one of these, but since the Metropolitan Museum of Art bought two of his pieces, it is unlikely I could ever afford to do so.

This is the one I mots covet. I could stare at it for hours.

Minus the cantilevered portion, this makes me think of a building in Tuscany south of Siena.

Moshe Safdie with a little Ralph Rapson thrown in for good measure.

I think I walked down this street.

My first thought was Hugh Newell Jacobson, but perhaps more likely to be H&dM again.

Perhaps Richard Rogers’ Lloyds of London building?

    Dujardin is one of the artists featured in a very lovely book: Beyond Architecture: imaginative Buildings and Fictional Cities (eds. Klanten & Feireiss)
