Detailed Paper Architecture by Dutch Artist Ingrid Siliakus

© Ingrid SiliakusThese amazing intricate details created by Amsterdam-based artist Ingrid Siliakus have been gathered under the name “Paper Architecture“. Miniature architectural details rise from thin folds of paper to shape three-dimensional artistic pieces. All those windows, corners and rooftops were designed to fit within a frame that imitates skylines and casts interesting shadows. Cubes, mock-ups, pop-ups – all pieces are unique, but a special one is dedicated to the study of Gaudi’s astonishing work and named “Reflection on Sagrada Familia”.

© Ingrid SiliakusFrom prototype to detailed results, the Paper Architecture series were created by designing each layer with careful consideration, as an architect would design a building. Here are a few words on how the artist works: “To design a pattern from scratch, the artist needs the skills of an architect to create a two-dimensional design, which, with the patience and precision of a surgeon, becomes an ingenious three-dimensional wonder of paper. After the design stage, creating a paper architecture art work is done by a combination of detailed cutting and folding. The paperweight Ingrid uses for her creations varies from 160 to 300 gram.” Has any of you tried any cutting/folding techniques?Paper Architecture
