Architect Mario Bass recreates Nice’s 19th century architecutre in 3D

Young architect Mario Bass from Nice was fascinated by the history of the city and decided to recreate the architecture of the most beautiful buildings of the19th century in 3D.

The idea for this project came to Mario after he stumbled upon a bunch of old postcards at a flea market in Cagnes-sur-Mer. Inspired by the architecture in the Belle Époque, he decided to recreate these wonderful buildings by architecture modeling in 3D mode. To accomplish this amazing project, he went through all the flea markets and bookstores in search of photographs or postcards of these magnificent buildings. These images were the only opportunity to see what the buildings looked like since there weren’t any kept architectural plans .

He reproduced each element of the building proportionally. The entire project took about 5,000 hours.

The results of his incredible work speak for themselves in the photos.
