Architects often use photographs of random passers by,  cut from their backgrounds and superimposed on building mock-ups to give a sense of scale to project art.

In her collage series Wall People, Georgian artist Eka Sharashidze makes the excised humans the main focus of the image – stacking and replicating them like musical notation or modern urban hieroglyphs.

Around 20 years ago, a government housing expo in the Gangnam district of Seoul in South Korea featured a town designed by leading local architects.

As well as making maximum use of the limited available footprint, this house – Ga On Jai – built by Iroje Khm Architects neatly encapsulates four distinctive Korean techniques of Korean architecture: Ru (internal support with one facade left open); Madang (the inner court); Cheoma (cantilevered roof) and Doldam (stone masonry wall).

An old schoolbus converted into a sleek living space, floored with wood panels recycled from an old gymnasium, created over 14 weeks by architecture student Hank Butitta.

He’s currently midway through a 5000 mile road trip to test it out (yes, his is a hard ‘oul station) and you can curse his youthful dream chasing follow his progress here.

Of this stunning, motion-controlled timelapse tour of European landmarks by night, filmmaker Luke Shepard sez:

Nightvision is a celebration of the brilliance and diversity of architecture found across Europe. Over the course of three months I journeyed with a friend through 36 cities in 21 countries with the ambition of capturing some of the greatest European structures in a new and unique way.

Full screen HD recommended.
