Urban landscapes change rather significantly with every generation as populations rise and demands evolve; Natwerk Studio brings attention to some of the mistakes that go along with such change in a playful and even silly manner. Known for their lighthearted approach to art and design, Natwerk Studio created a series of miniature houses that were then installed between the crack of two buildings in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Natwerk Studio came up with the concept when they noted the number-gap from 54 to 70. Each miniature house represents a missing structure between the two buildings. As PSFK notes, the oversight is a "sociological reminder that cities reinvent themselves and often, mistakes are made." Natwerk Studio creatively fixed that mistake.
