30 Mirrored Architecture Ideas

From Reflective Camouflaged Houses to Mirrored Farm Buildings

— June 9, 2015 — Eco
Mirrored architecture is an interesting way to create an optical illusion. While mirrors are used in fun houses at carnivals to exaggerate or compress someone's reflection the same method can be used on buildings as well.

This type of material can also be considered camouflage. In vacant areas such a gardens and forested areas, a house with mirrored paneling can be mistaken by viewers thinking they are just seeing directly through the house opposed to directly at it.

Mirrored architecture can also be used as a decorative piece of art. There are massive works of art that hang overhead such as Teresita Fernández's 500 foot long kaleidoscope canopy called 'Fata Morgana.'

Incorporating mirrors into architecture adds an intricate and sometimes deceitful characteristic to a building.
