Contemplative Designs

Attention-grabbing and interesting, the following structures are meant to reflect their natural surroundings and draw observers in. They inventively mirror back the landscape and create a much different view than ordinary designs.

Designed by Holzer Kobler Architects, the Paläon is a paleontological research facility and museum located in Germany.

The entire surface of the structure is covered with a reflective material that looks like shiny mirrors. It echoes and returns the outdoors, creatively making it stand out and blend in at the same time. The windows are presented in a unique layout and allow natural sunlight to beam through the interior.

The architects’ intention in this particular design was for the eye-catching building to reflect the archaeologically rich land of the region. The center sits in the midst of a field, and the spot that houses the building and its award winning facade is also known for its historical finds. 20 years ago archaeological digs produced a collection of spears that were said to be 300,000 years old and the oldest series of such items found to date . Also discovered on the site were other artifacts and even a boomerang.

Another mirrored production is from Autumn de Wilde, who has earned a respected name in the music, fashion and entertainment industries as a talented photographer and artist. Known for her ability to capture the subject and present their characteristics and individuality while adding in the perfect blend of her distinct photographic style, this also comes through in this piece of reflective structures.

According to the artist it is made to make the observer stop and think about everyday reality and meaning, sort of  like looking deeply in a mirror, as looking at the mirrored buildings the viewer is inspired to really stop and take a look.
