Improbable Buildings


Filip Dujardin builds some unusual structural images from existing architectural photographs –

Every montage, says Dujardin, is one project. It begins with an idea for a specific image. Often he starts off by building a model of the form he is trying to achieve – at first in cardboard, but he has recently discovered SketchUp. He then goes on a photo safari, often just around the corner, to find suitable buildings “with a lot of the same things,” so that they can be cut and pasted and serve as building material. In fact most of the fictional structures are buildings in Ghent, just resampled

    Here is a post card photo of real building in Montreal that was built for the Expo 1967 Exhibition, its called Habbitat.

    It was supposed to be taken down after the Expo, but it still stands today and is now an apartment building.
