Spanish artistDionisio González is a master of fanciful architectural visualizations, designing structures that are just a little too wild and imaginative to be real. Now, González imagines retro-futuristic amphibious dwellings made primarily of metal, resting on artificial islands against a backdrop of picturesque Norwegian fjords.
Named “Wittgenstein’s Cabin,” the series draws inspiration from the secluded 1914 hut of Austrian-British philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein. Built on the steep shoreline of Lake Eidsvatnet in Skjolden, Norway, the cabin was purposefully located to be as remote as possible, serving as Wittgenstein’s distraction-free refuge where he wrote some of his most important works.
