Architectural Absurdities by Tom Ngo via Dezeen
Toronto-based illustrator Tom Ngo has updated his drawing series of “architectural absurdities” with additions including a building made of stairs and an impossible lighthouse. Building on the themes of his first sketches from 2009, Tom Ngo imagines fantastical structures that reinterpret the architectural vocabulary of common building typologies. The series began as Ngo was completing his master thesis, which was based on the theory that absurd alternatives can help find the answers to contemporary architectural issues.
“Architectural absurdity playfully transgresses within the rules of building formation to create valid alternative assemblages while scrutinising regulation,”
