A Mumbai, India-based architecture firm, Material Immaterial Studio, is celebrating the utility, durability, and downright beauty of concrete in a new collection of miniature buildings that look like something right out of Monument Valley. The pieces in the series were inspired by real-world iconic structures, like Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye, Tadao Ando's Church of the Light, and Oscar Niemeyer's collection of sculptural buildings in Brazil's capital city of Brasilia, all of which share in the distinction of being made of concrete. Though the set comprises 9 pieces, they can be combined to form the überstructure seen above.
