Brodsky & Utkin

Unless you’re Shigeru Ban, Paper Architecture describes the speculative and unbuilt. Frequently these projects are absurd in either scale or structure; their intent is not realization, but provocation or re-imagination. There are numerous contemporary and historic examples of such projects, including the mischievous duo Brodsky & Utkin.

I say mischievous because Brodsky and Utkin worked at the same time as Lebbus Woods and Zaha Hadid, but rendered their work using the techniques of older papertects like Boullée or Ledoux.
