"These images are the result of three-dimensional graphics processing from software to dedicated rendering and post production.
They are mainly works of architecture, divided into exterior, interior, close-up views of details" 

 

The project ‘Was ist Metaphysik?‘ (‘What is metaphysics?’) by Florence-based designer Michele Durazzi combines architectural details and natural landscapes to create surreal cityscapes.

 

 

 

The 3D images, which are not based on real-life architecture, zoom-in on geometric elements. Inspired by a philosophical work by Martin Heidegger, Durazzi juxtaposes familiar scenes with fabricated structures and invites viewers to construct a reality of their own.
