The Complex Worlds of Vasco Mourão

Illustrator Vasco Mourão creates incredibly imaginative drawings of subterranean cities, dirigible homes, and cliff-side housing. Life Without Buildings is of the opinion that these are the typologies architects really should be focusing on. Odd and distopic, his drawings are reminiscent of a looser, more whimsical Piranesi etching. Although I think it’d be nice to see some variation in line weights, one has to admire the detail and hypnotic density of each piece. Check out his blog for more.
