Transformative Architecture

Many areas of India are undergoing an incredible transformation as existing infrastructure is overhauled in favor of more up-to-date systems. Although most construction projects feature an unwelcoming aesthetic, Designboom points us to one design solution where the designers have turned a blight of storm pipes into beautiful works of art. By simply taking colored cellophane and fashioning it to one side of each pipe, the creatives at Urfun Lab have fashioned a makeshift kaleidoscope of colorful forms that transform an unsightly concrete roadside pile into a strikingly beautiful, unexpected public space.
