Model maker and set builder Luke Aan De Wiel has replicated cities around the world in a series, created in conjunction with the photographer Andy Rudak, built at half scale entirely from cardboard.


The resurgence of cardboard as a design material is a popular trend, like the Chairigami line of furniture. Designers are increasingly choosing to take advantage of the material’s
strength and affordability.


Luke Aan De Wiel’s intricate cardboard creations include a New York City scene, a towerblock, a street in the Montmartre area of Paris, a slum in Mumbai, and a Tokyo city street depicting both the old and the new.
