archatlas: Fictional Architecture As special effects budgets continue to grow, the architectural wonders that TV, film and video game producers create seem to get more and more impressive. From the castles of Westeros to the imaginative, colorful designs of Studio Ghibli, they compiled some of the most iconic and interesting architectural feats that they feel best represent six of their favorite fictional universes. In order to capture the finer details and the feel of each building, they’ve illustrated each one with a pen and paper – and they are pretty happy with the results!

archatlas: Frozen Landscapes Tell a Winter’s Tale in New Photographs by Kilian Schönberger German photographer Kilian Schönberger is known for capturing otherworldly images of his natural surroundings. His latest series, Winter’s Tale, was shot in the mountain ranges of Germany and central Europe and showcases the desaturated, hushed landscapes of snow-covered forests.
