Chris Hildrey: Landscapes

Work / Architecture

What the? Chris Hildrey’s ambiguous landscapes amaze with their minute complexity

Dirty grey chewing gum? Complex concrete structure? Stretched Polyfiller? No, none of these things are the subject of the pictures you see before you. In fact these striking images are digital renders of imaginary landscapes created by the hugely talented Chris Hildrey. The Bartlett-trained CAD whizz can usually be found planning complex architectural structures for Jestico + Whiles and has previously worked for the legendary Foster and Partners and ZHA Architects. But here we see him in his free time, away from the world of corporate architecture, flexing his creative muscles and exploring the artistic potential of software usually used to model the preliminary stages of giant tower blocks. A lesson to us all that spare time can be used for so much more than slobbing in front of the telly.
