Architecture Design

Artist turned Domestic Furniture Into Architectural Models

Sculptor Ted Lott constructs wooden artworks based on one of the most basic demands of humans, exploring the various methods we have conceived shelter as a product of the industrial revolution. Without the ornamental designs imposed by exterior siding and painting, Lott examines modern architecture at its heart by constructing small-scale models.

He then combines these bare yet elegant constructions with national furniture, fusing with the comforts supplied from within the fundamental necessities of home.

Lott utilizes a bandsaw as a scaled sawmill to produce miniature wood parts and other proportionate raw materials to construct his works. Found and vintage furniture provide the foundation of its buildings that are then illuminated from within as if someone is home.
