New York-based artist Adam Ryder creates magnificent Sci-Fi structures in his latest project titled, 'Areth: An Architectural Atlas.' This extraordinary art series takes existing buildings from cities across America and drops them into exquisite Martian-like backgrounds. There’s something about seeing these beautiful modern buildings removed from the city that makes it easier to appreciate as remarkable works of art.

In Ryder’s ingenious art project, these inspired buildings are placed in remote, nature-filled settings with striking, sepia-tone skies. The serene backdrops really make these futuristic structures pop, allowing the viewer to examine them as if they were seeing them for the first time. These photos really do look like they were taken in some stunning foreign planet very similar to our own.
