Mini Paper Pavilion Club

Absolutely love these miniature paper models!

'The Miniature Paper Pavilion Club meets biweekly in Vancouver to build ~1:100 scale architectural marvels. We are interested in creating imaginary celebratory public spaces - miniature beacons to all humankind, elevating the wonder of innovation and excellence! ’

Oh c’est lovely, ça, oui

Miniature Spaces Carved From Stone, Archdaily
“Matthew Simmonds, an art historian and architectural stone carver based in Italy, has created a collection of exceptionally beautiful miniature spaces carved from stone. Having worked on a number of restoration projects in the UK – from Westminster Abbey to Ely Cathedral - his skills have been transferred into work of a much smaller, if not more intricate, scale. Hewn from large stone blocks (some of marble), the level of intricacy Simmonds has achieved in the architectural detailing is almost incredible. Capitals, vaults and surfaces all distort and reflect light in a very beguiling way”
