File this one under: Cool Things We Like. Edinburgh-based artist Charles Young spent a year—more time than it would take to construct some actual buildings—crafting this tiny metropolis, named Paperholm, out of (you guessed it) paper. And the result is at least as impressive as a real building. More so, probably, when you think about the types of buildings that get built in under a year. Not only is each of the more than 300 parts of the city meticulously constructed, but many of them move as well. It's pretty much the best.
