Architecture and design intrigue us – whatever the scale, whatever the medium. And Wataru Itou, an art student from Tokyo just wins us over with this wonderful paper craft art installation he showed off at an exhibition in Japan.
The installation is hand made, complete with electrical lights and a moving train, all made of cut and folded paper and 4 years of long hard work! It was exhibited at Umihotaru, a service area in the middle of the ocean, right between Tokyo City and Chiba Prefecture. The castle is delicately crafted with attention given to every minute detail. The beauty and elegance have not been compromised with in the least bit. From the towers to the aisle, every single feature just pops out and gives you the impression of a castle from a fairy tale!
