Frank Lloyd Wright probably never imagined what his Guggenheim would look like coated in frosting. (Although plenty of other people have.) The building materials for a new series of models, however, sound a lot more like a three-year-old's dream breakfast order than anything resembling bricks and mortar.
Photographer Henry Hargreaves partnered with food stylist Caitlin Levin to imagine some of the world's most famous museums in mini, using candy. These too-pretty-to-eat models will be on display at the Dylan's Candy Bar store in Miami Beach starting Friday in connection with the Art Basel show this week. They will travel to New York in January, according to a Dylan's Candy Bar spokesperson.
"We wanted the photos themselves to resemble architectural images of the buildings, hence the black and white," Hargreaves writes in an email. Watch their video for some glimpses of what these sweet structures look like IRL.
