Paper planes...

German artist Simon Schubert manages to create the most opulent and luxurious settings out of the simplest and most basic materials. His folded paper visions of stately homes and grand interiors change throughout the day as the light strikes them.

His newer, smaller pieces include scenes from the series investigating 'Stadtschloss', a city palace of Berlin. The artist states "the Berlin Stadtschloss was built up during the last 350 years for the German emperors and was torn down by the Eastern German government during the time Germany was parted. Nowadays there are plans to rebuild it. I think it has an interesting history and it is interesting that it doesn't exist anymore." Most of Schubert's folded architectural pieces are based on imaginary spaces.
