I came across these pretty and colourful silhouette posters of various cities while looking for design inspirations for my bedroom. Designed by Yoni Alter, Shapes of Cities really just takes several distinctive landmarks of major cities and juxtaposes them against each other in a colourful way.
It’s very simple, but quite captivating. Something about seeing the proportions of the various unique landmarks against each other that gives one a different perspective of the city, somehow. Can you name all the buildings? (Check Yoni’s website in the link above for the answers!)
There are Asian cities like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, but no Singapore version yet, but when I asked, he did say that it was on his list, so I’m keeping my eye out for that!
*added 28 Oct 2014: Yoni kindly dropped me a note to say that the Singapore version is out, Yippee! Scroll down for it…
