Photographer Filip Dujardin designs architectural wonders in the digital realm. The Belgian artist began as a professional architectural photographer before turning to design in 2007, creating virtual buildings using Google SketchUp—a 3D modeling tool—and Photoshop. At first glance, Dujardin’s photographs of buildings seem almost ordinary, though highly modern, only revealing their structural implausibility upon close examination. He ignores the laws of physics, defying gravity and material, to create exquisite architectural compositions.

Dujardin has exhibited in group and solo exhibitions since 2008. His work is in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and is currently on view in the Met's exhibition Faking It: Manipulated Photography Before Photoshop.
