Toronto-based artist Tom Ngo's drawings of depicting scenarios he refers to as Architectural Absurdities.
Ghost Town Precious. “This construction combines the themes of permanence and the ephemeral. Shoddily constructed with hints of integrity, the structure has a ghost-town quality”.
Ngo’s imagined structures include a monument for people with eight arms, a park for carpets and a house designed for a collector of meat grinders.
Above: The Swing-Set Houses. “A pair of houses are attached to a large swing-set structure. The houses share a communal circulation core and next door is an individual swing for one person”.
“These drawings are created through fracturing rules of concept/design and then obeying them ad absurdum,” says Ngo. “The result is a nutty and whimsical brand of social commentary.”
Above: No Other Way. “A dream house for a meat grinder collector. The above building is constructed of four like facades presenting him a new home every time he arrives by balloon. The structure below is a mental retreat from his constantly changing everyday”.
