Extracts of Local Distance combines fragments of existing architectural photography into multilayered shapes, so the resulting collages introduce a third abstract point of view alongside the original views of the architect and photographer.

Absolutely beautiful, reminds me of Felice Varini!

That's really neat. Some of the pictures remind me of Zaha Hadid's concept drawings, in the way there are all kinds of seemingly-disconnected planes and shapes bursting out of a neutral plane.

What a cool technique, with beautiful results - I especially like the side-by-side comparison between Mies's and Libeskind's buildings. I only wish he had tried it on something built before the 20th century.

Seriously, though, a cool auto-collage technique. As far as being a kind of generative architecture synthesizer, less so, as there's not really a way of expanding configurations back out into 3d and working with them.

Also, Daniel Libeskind needs to stop getting so much attention.
