Crafting Chicago Architecture From Everyday Items

By Samantha Abernethy in Arts & Entertainment on Dec 10, 2011 10:00PM


Artist Luis Urculo uses everyday household materials to create models of large, important architectural landmarks. From a Hancock Center made of books to a Sears Tower made of butter knives, this video will have you thinking differently about our architectural landmarks. It's not just Chicago, though. She recreates the Guggenheim Museum in New York and the National Congress of Brazil. Our personal favorite is her creation of Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater in Pennsylvania.
