Intricate Wooden City Sculptures by James McNabb

Philadelphia-based artist  James McNabb (furniture-maker-turned-sculptor) has created the City Series, an amazing collection of wooden sculptures, composed of miniature buildings, skyscrapers and architectural forms that depict intricate cityscapes.

The wooden skyscrapers, made in different shapes and sizes, look remarkably like the Manhattan skyline in New York City.

Each piece depicts the outsider’s perspective of the urban landscape. Made entirely of scrap wood, this work is an interpretation of making something out of nothing. Each piece is cut intuitively on a band saw. The result is a collection of architectural forms, each distinctly different from the next.

‘I grabbed a piece of scrap wood from the bin, and without thinking, made some cuts. In a few minutes the piece started to look strangely familiar, like a screwdriver or a mini skyscraper. I grabbed another piece of scrap wood, and made another object – this time, it looked like wrench, or a table leg. In the next hour I made 15 more – I stayed up that night and worked until morning. In 24 hours I made more than 200, all intricately different from the next.”

Mesmerising Light Installations By JamesTurrell

At Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg

James Turrell is an American artist widely known for his explorations of light and space.

“He began his career back in the 1960′s in California at a time when the Light and Space group of artists in Los Angeles was coming into prominence. Here’s a short description of the movement:

Whether by directing the flow of natural light, embedding artificial light within objects or architecture, or by playing with light through the use of transparent, translucent or reflective materials, Light and Space artists made the spectator’s experience of light and other sensory phenomena under specific conditions the focus of their work.”

More info: EFFEKT

Designed by Danish architecture firm EFFEKT, The Treetop Experience of the camp adventure recreation park in Denmark, will debut in the summer of 2018. Located one hour south of Copenhagen, Denmark, the Treetop Experience begins with a walk through the forest of Gisselfeld Klosters Skove that has various sections to stop and relax, or explore and learn.

The continuous wood ramp is 1,970 ft (600m) long and connects to a 148 ft (45m) tall observation tower with a 360° view.

Located one hour south of Copenhagen, Denmark, the Treetop Experience begins with a walk through the forest of Gisselfeld Klosters Skove that has various sections to stop and relax, or explore and learn.

The winding path leading up the observation tower will be made from timber from the surrounding forest, and weathering steel will be used for the structure. Easily accessible, anyone will be able to enjoy the spectacular views from the top of the tower.

Looking up through the tower, different levels are revealed, and the shape of the tower can be appreciated. The halfway point of the tower is the slimmest part, with the base and top being the largest. This form allows for the tower to organically fit in with the forest canopy.

Nostalgic Beauty of Abandoned Buildings by Matthias Haker

More info: Website | DeviantArt | Facebook

Matthias Haker is a Potsdam-born photographer and artist currently living in Dresden, Germany. He’s specializing in architectural and interior photography as well as people, portrait, fashion and wedding photography. He is particular interested in abandoned buildings and architecture. Let’s take a look at his decay photography collection showing haunting beauty of abandoned buildings around Europe.

Mr Haker explained: ‘In general I’d say my work is all about beauty. Even though I can understand the sadness that overcomes people when seeing those buildings in the desolate state they are in, I usually do not try to express sadness, creepiness or anything like that in my work.’

From day to night! Photographer creates incredible ‘timeslice’ photos buildings

More info: richardsilverphoto.com

A photographer has created beautiful pictures showing changing light of sunsets over iconic landmarks in one image.

Richard Silver has snapped the Houses of Parliament, Rome’s Coliseum and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai using his ‘timeslice’ method.

The photographs show how the landscapes transform from daylight hours, to dusk and then night-time.

Overall the artist from New York, US, has shot 38 buildings around the world from Beijing to Dubai and Milan.

Richard said: ‘I wanted to photograph iconic world buildings at sunset and capture the changing light from day to night in a single image.

It takes Richard around two hours of clicking to capture enough pictures – usually between 40 and 60 – to create the finished image.

He puts his camera in a spot where he can capture most, if not all, of the building he is trying to shoot.

Richard takes photos for about 45 minutes before and during the sunset and then for half an hour after the sunset to create the amazing effect.
