Architecture, Painstakingly Rendered in Watercolor

Categories: Architecture + Interiors, Art + Graphics

cardsBernd H. Dams and Andrew Zega, principals in the Parisian atelier Architectural Watercolors, are architectural and garden historians who also happen to be expert at rendering stupefyingly detailed watercolors of buildings—the culmination of painstakingly conducted research.

“As most buildings we depict are either destroyed or have been severely altered, we begin with period documents…all available information is weighed and sifted, then synthesized in initial sketches.” In collaboration with the New York stationery company Libretto Group, a selection of their watercolors, depicting a series of fanciful pagodas, has been translated into a set of whimsical note cards.
