At first glance the images above may look like a bunch of random color shapes, but look closer: This origami optical illusion is the hallway of a new addition at Birkbeck College in London for their film department. Surface Architects' design included a new auditorium which includes this wild and crazy corridor. The bright colors and obtuse angles are a new and vibrant way of looking at utilitarian buildings and creating a stimulating environment. The building is creative and inspiring, especially considering it lies within an artistic educational institute.
