Modern architecture is partly responsible for the way we live our lives, but it affects more than just the building around us and the houses we dwell. Have you ever thought about a computer’s architecture?
An Italian artist by the name of Franco Recchia thought about computer architecture in a way that goes beyond just wondering if something can run crysis with maxed settings: he took the meaning of “literature” in its most traditional sense, and built miniature city skylines made entirely out of computer boards.
Recchia depicted some pretty recognizable locations, most of them of New York, such as the Fifth Avenue, Central Park, or Manhattan, but also did other cities like Boston. His work first surfaced at Inhabitat.
