Re: Beautiful places & moments around the world

the next pictures are architecture Delusions: creative architecture combining optical illusions

The Trassenheide Upside-Down House was created by Polish architects Klaudiusz Golos and Sebastian Mikiciuk as part of the project 'The World Upside Down' which allows visitors a different view of every day items. Since the whole interior is upside-down and can disorient some, the house is used purely as an exhibit.

Re: Beautiful places & moments around the world

This building in Paris is the creation of artist Leonardo Erlich, part of the exhibition "Feelings" (In Perceptions).
Its simple but a sophisticated piece: Front of the large building was set on high ground near sight, that gives everyone who reflected a strange feeling as if its weightless

Re: Beautiful places & moments around the world

What you see here is actually a fresco on a building located in George V Avenue in Paris. This is a three-dimensional painting technique Trompe-l'oeil, which combines realistic paintings that create an optical illusion as if the objects described are real, not just two-dimensional paintings

Re: Beautiful places & moments around the world

Architectural optical illusions images create a rather strange pictures. This building is actually Montreal's Olympic Stadium. The first question that arises is: Is it on purpose?

Re: Beautiful places & moments around the world

Is this house really sinking? Likelihood of it is zero, but it certainly seems that way. The way the optical illusion was made: The first picture is taken at an angle that gives the impression that the house is sinking, when in fact the camera simply tended to the right

Re: Beautiful places & moments around the world

The cafe wall illusion, also known as Münsterberg illusion is an optical illusion produced by sequencing of the black and white triangles zigzag pattern. While it seems that the pattern tends toward right-wing corner, the gray lines are actually parallel. Illusion greatly reduced when using black lines instead of gray.
