Michele Durazzi Creates Surreal Minimalist Architecture Images
- Charmaine Li
In the project ‘Was ist Metaphysik?‘ (‘What is metaphysics?’), Florence-based designer Michele Durazzi combines architectural details and natural landscapes to create striking surreal cityscapes. The 3D images, which are not based on real-life architecture, zoom-in on geometric elements as well as explore the realm where philosophy and architecture crossover. The series is also named after a philosophical work by Martin Heidegger. Delving into ‘surreal minimalism’, Durazzi juxtaposes familiar scenes with fabricated structures and invites viewers to construct a reality of their own.
