When experiencing a building, we have to move around it to get the architecture's full impact. With a new series of GIFs called "Architecture Animée," French architect Axel de Stampa is changing our perceptions of iconic constructions.
Taking buildings by Herzog & de Meuron, MAD, MVRDV, and others, de Stampa breaks apart the designs and animates individual pieces to highlight different aspects of well known structures. In his series, the New Museum's floors slide back and forth and the Memory Museum spins on its foundation.
The playful visual project was part of 1week1project, an initiative with one de Stampa's former classmates to produce 52 architecture projects in one year.
