As if the aesthetics weren't enough to impress onlookers, it should be noted that Portuguese artist Ricardo Barragão’s ‘Cidades Invisiveis’ was inspired by a classic novel that was even more groundbreaking in its genre. The project’s title was borrowed from an Italo Calvino novel of the same name. ‘Cidades Invisiveis’ is Portugese for the Italian ‘Le città invisibili,’ which in English translates to ‘Invisible Cities.

The novel has been used by architects and artists to picture the potential of cities. Ricardo Barragão has used it to design a potentially wonderful piece of architectural art.
