Last year, Trend Hunter featured a staple project dubbed 'Low-Rise,' and now I would like to bring you attention to the sequel, Peter Root's 'Ephemicropolis.' Deciding to go big instead of going home, Root used 100,000 staples to mimic a metropolis filled not only with low-rises, but also skyscrapers and more.

Completed in 40 hours, Peter Root's 'Ephemicropolis' covers 6m x 3m of floor space, with the highest point rising to 12 cm tall. After browsing through the images above, check out the video. Stats for Stapled Metropolises Trending: Older & Mild
