Remember the bespoke architectural jelly moulds by Bombas & Parr? Well, San Francisco-based artist Liz Hickok seems to have taken that idea a bit further, rendering her entire city in Jell-O and documenting the results in photographs and videos [including one of Telegraph Hill during an earthquake!].

I keep finding architecture made from silly materials, which is awesome. In addition to the bespoke architectural jelly moulds by Bombas & Parr, there is the gingerbread Mies van der Rohe Farnsworth House, and LEGO versions of Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye, a Skyline Chili parlor, Sean Kinney’s architectural work [including the Empire State Building and the Great Wall of China], and Christoph Niemann’s minimal architectural models of NYC buildings [including Madison Square Garden and the Flatiron Building]. Too much fun!

  1. There is an element of obsessive insanity to this whole project. The saturated colors look great with that moody lighting, it’s almost like a series by David Levinthal, if he had with a sense of humor.

  2. Wow, this may well be the most ridiculous art project I have seen in a while! I was searching for photos of San Francisco and came across this instead. It brought a smile to my face!
