It is hard to look at the Floating City paper sculpture and not wish for it to actually exist. If it did, it would be like a fabled metropolis high up in the sky, which will certainly appeal to a modern society who is currently thriving off of myths, legends and fairy tales. The ethereal quality of the Floating City paper sculpture only adds to its magical and majestic aesthetic.

Created by the same Japanese artist who created intricate three dimensional paper canvases, Katsumi Hayakawa, the Floating City sculpture was constructed with nothing more than paper, glue, glitter and wire. Recently unveiled during the 2011 Very Fun Park exhibit, the Floating City paper sculpture looks like a CGI grid of a real city. Stats for Suspended Paper Metropolises Trending: Older & Mild
