Here's something fun in the architecture-meets-art category: a complex paper castle, which one steady-handed art student in Tokyo spent more than four years constructing. Wataru Itou took pains to rig the structure with electrical lights, a moving train, a ferris wheel, spires, and more, and this so-called "Castle On the Ocean" is currently on view at an exhibition space in Umihotaru, an artificial island between Tokyo City and Chiba Prefecture. Let's face it: while, say, George Harrison's old castle in Switzerland may be more trustworthy in a rainstorm, Itou's creation is pretty damn cool. The blog Tokyobling has more photos.
