Modern-day Gaudi

In Architecture, Art, Design, Surreal on February 13, 2012 at 2:27 pm

I recently remembered stumbling across a spread in Wallpaper magazine that instantly took my breath away. I raced to dig these up from my pile of magazine cuttings- It was a spread of architect Bart Prince’s work (picture above) and pages and pages of amazing craftsmanship. It has been a long time since we have seen an architect put such dedication into the minute details of a structure’s facade, as well as the interior.

A true visionary, Bart Prince has managed to design works of art that live in a world on its own. His designs are so unique to his style- very abstract and structured, and yet organic at the same time. He has such a talent for weaving different shapes and material together into a cohesive manifestation. They look a little alien even, and timeless. His work aesthetic reminds me strongly of Gaudi who also had a specific vision for his creations. Very beautiful work.

It’s interesting that his blueprints, in all its simplicity are almost as beautiful as the actual structures themselves. They are almost like how a alien language would look like visualised.
