Street Artist EVOL Creates a Tiny Town in a Grassy Field

German street artist EVOL recently carved two intersecting canals into a field just outside of Hamburg, Germany, and constructed a miniature city inside of them. Wandering through these streets, one can be forgiven if they lapse into a bit of Godzilla-like behavior.

The facades of the buildings are constructed from concrete, while the windows, complete with drapes, are painted on. The structures also address environmental concerns as the roofs are made from the grassy field in which the city lies.

EVOL's work is outdoors and exposed to the elements. Because of this, the avenues of his fair city collect rainwater. Little puddles are found throughout the faux urban canyons that make up the town. On a miniature scale, however, these puddles are more like great floods.
