Friday Eye Candy: The Surreal Architecture of Victor Enrich

After seven months of work, Víctor Enrich has shared "NHDK", an enchanting exploration of how to rethink the everyday environments that surround us. The project is the artist's latest experiment in digital manipulation and provocation.

You may have seen the video below make the rounds of the Internet over the past week. Though it took seven months to construct, Victor Enrich's 88 variations on Munich's NH München Deutscher Kaiser hotel isn't a one-off production. The digital artist has been using photography and 3D modeling software to play with building forms, and our perceptions of reality, for years. 

"Calling to mind the surrealist architectural collage of Filip Dujardin, Enrich’s designs are so realistic at first glance, they prompt a quick double-take," writes contributor Stephanie Rogers in Web Urbanist. "Enrich travels the world and takes photographs of cities, manipulating them digitally to produce these strange images."
