The Mirror House duplicates the Surrounding Environment

It almost looks like part of the building is invisible. This architectural project was designed by studio MLRP—they “transformed an existing graffiti-plagued playground structure to an inviting and reflective pavilion as part of the new ‘Interactive Playground Project’ in Copenhagen.” [1] MLRP used fun house mirrors to create an interactive space for passing spectators, which […]
