Paperholm began in August 2014 as a daily project by artist Charles Young as a 365-day creative project to explore different architectural forms through paper. Except that he never stopped and the tiny paper metropolis has now grown to 635 buildings, many with moving parts that Young expertly animates and shares daily on his Tumblr.
All of the models are made using 200gsm watercolour paper and PVA glue. This method allows for rapid construction and exploration of diverse areas of architecture, pushing the possibilities of this single material.
