Paper Architecture: Hagia Sophia
One of the most awe-inspiring buildings I've had the opportunity to experience is the Hagia Sophia.
It was dusk when I first saw it, and the majestic building appeared to glow as birds circled high overhead... just beautiful. Though I could go on about the architectural, historical and cultural relevance of this building from an analytical point of view, why it has such an powerful emotive quality is more difficult to discern and express.
So... I can only try to hunt down all the 35mm film from my trip to Istanbul and in the meanwhile, share one of my favorite paper architecture projects. Enjoy!
