Design Stack: A Blog about Art, Design and Architecture: Live Architecture Drawings

Italian architecture, through the eyes of an artist.

Italian architect and artist niki_tubi replicated these stunning buildings for us to see. Picked up from the four corners of the Italian peninsula, they symbolize different architectural styles from the past.

They were built at a time when money for the arts was very limited and designers were competing in ever more generous designs.

I would love to see the artist’s view of the building and the representation next to the real thing. Specifically, seeing the touches each add up.

An opportunity to visit Italy from any number of digital devices you might look at from this. Experience instant travel, faster and more comfortable than flying.
