Victor Enrich sees cities in a unique way. A Catalan artist working in Barcelona, he gives buildings “self-determination” . To him cities are alive, and so in his art buildings bend and stretch, even jump. According to Victor Enrich:
Each part of the city acts as a catalyst of feelings, ideas and digressions that, once after its empowered soul emerges, becomes alive, unrestricted from norms, ready to fly into new, yet unexplored shapes (via Victor Enrich)
His images are taken from Munich, Barcelona, and other cities around the world. Thanks to Design Boom.
Víctor Enrich, photographer and illustrator, gets a kick out of bending reality. NHDK is a series of 88 whimsical photographs that show the NH München Deutscher Kaiser Hotel in Munich twisting and turning like it’s made of rubber.
Victor Enrich is the kind of guy who can’t walk
down the street without analyzing and comparing buildings. It’s a huge inspiration for his
photography, which features humorous digitally
manipulated photos of fantastical structures you’d never find in real
life and the occasional measuring system you’ve never considered.
Measure is one such photograph.
It features the narrow, wedge-shaped building that houses New York’s Storefront gallery inverted on a
replica of the Spanish
Pavilion built for the 1937 World’s Fair in Paris. The image,
though trippy, isn’t completely nonsensical: It proves the pavilion measures
exactly one “storefront,” or 100 feet long.

project and his take on the concept of measurement.
