Paper City


I’m pretty sure you all had made paper planes when you were kids but have you ever thought of making a brand new city with paper? Probably not! Edinburgh-based artist Charles Young started a daily project named Paperholm in August 2014 to explore diverse areas of architecture through a single medium. Young used to design, cut, and assemble a new model daily using 200gsm watercolor paper and PVA glue with many moving parts that he photographed to create expertly animations. This paper city has now grown to 635 buildings. If you want to take a tour of paper city visit his website:
