Miniature Concrete Buildings by Material Immaterial studio

Material Immaterial studio designed a miniature community of modern, concrete buildings as a way to celebrate the beauty of concrete and all the material’s contributions to modern design. Dubbed ‘SPACES’, the project looks to iconic buildings of the last century, like Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater, Oscar Niemeyer’s Brasilia, and Tadao Ando’s Church of the Light, all constructed with concrete.

Each individual piece, with its volumes and voids, is meant to give the imagination a glimpse into what hides within. The nine pieces are designed to be placed together around the central ‘Kund’, forming a community space.
