Material Immaterial, a studio based in Mumbai, India, has created an adorable set of miniature concrete buildings to pay tribute to some of the most iconic architectural feats of the last century. By choosing this particular material, however, Material Immaterial also celebrates cement. Each piece takes on a blocky aesthetic, allowing them to fit together in a cozy community.

Dubbed SPACES, the collection by Material Immaterial is inspired by such designs as Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater, Oscar Niemeyer’s Brasilia and Tadao Ando’s Church of the Light. Design Milk writes, "Each individual piece, with its volumes and voids, is meant to give the imagination a glimpse into what hides within. The nine pieces are designed to be placed together around the central ‘Kund’, forming a community space."
