Christina Lihan’s Amazing Paper Sculptures of Architectural Wonders


It’s no surprise that Christina Lihan went to school to be an architect; her beautiful and delicate paper relief sculptures of buildings and cityscapes reveal a deep standing of and love for the field. In works that range from two to six inches deep, Lihan meticulously recreates everything from the patterns on the exterior of the Taj Mahal to New York’s George Washington Bridge, with the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building in the background. And she doesn’t only have eyes for famous places — one of our favorite pieces spotlights the exterior of a South Beach condo, complete with perfectly rendered palm trees. See a selection of Lihan’s sculptures after the jump, and learn more about her work at her website.
