Iconic pre-1960s homes from around the globe are broken down into their simplest geometric forms in this illustration video by Matteo Muci. With a jazzy tune setting a light-hearted mood, windows and walls fly into place – vertically and horizontally – to construct flattened 2-dimensional interpretations of the houses. The five homes featured – Ville Savoye, Farnsworth House, Glass House, Fallingwater and Rietveld Schröder House – are set against pastel backdrops to further illustrate the playful tone that the short clip emulates. View the video below for an animated look at the architectural masterpieces.
