In a mesmerizing series, former agency director and now hands-on designer Anton Repponen takes recognizable (some iconic) structures and places them in barren landscapes. The result is entirely familiar and surreal at the same time. From the United Nations headquarters sitting in the middle of a desert, 8 Spruce Street (aka New York By Gehry) on a sand dune to the Guggenheim Museum on a rocky cliff, the images make no sense but look oddly real. Take a look at where Repponen put the Chrysler Building and more at The Guardian.
