3D Blueprint Art: Visual House Plans into Real-Life Models For those of us who love the look of classic blueprints this is a childhood fantasy world come to life – a strange and surreal mixtures of two-dimensional scale drawing and full-sized furniture and structural objects emerging from these flat surfaces. In places, this installation by Ou Studio (via Dezeen) is entirely drawn – but it still engages with a curious contextual interplay with surrounding objects, such as the tree and imagined area behind the wall in the image above. In other parts, this artwork takes on a fanciful life of its own as the objects start to animate along the base blue wall, seemingly in various phases of becoming physical and organizing from chaos according to some kind of plan. The net result is whimsical, creative and original – yet it still traces its roots back to one of the most logical, rational and common systems used for ages within the architectural industry: the pervasive blueprint.
