20 Buildings Inspired By Everyday Objects Drawn By Architect Felipe De Castro

Published 5 months ago

Felipe de Castro is a 33-year-old Brazilian architect and urban planner based in Rio de Janeiro who sees almost everything around him as inspiration. The man draws unique buildings inspired by all sorts of everyday objects, and you’ll be surprised to see how easily he can turn something as simple as a USB stick or a pile of binders into a beautiful mansion or an office building.

In a recent interview with Bored Panda, Felipe said that at first, he used to do these “conversions” in his head since he was a kid and only started drawing them a few years ago. “Recently, I observed a pencil holder at my desk. I could imagine the construction of that pencil holder and I decided to draw it,” explained the architect. “I moved it to paper and created a construction from the proportion of this object on a larger scale. It’s a kind of creativity exercise.”

The artist seems to never be short of ideas, and his 65k fans are always looking forward to his latest rendition. Check out some of the best ones so far in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
