Japanese artist Takanori Aiba has a varied background in his career, working as a maze illustrator and later on, an architect. Now merging these two crafts, he creates delicate and intricate micro spaces. Calling on his skill and attention to detail as an architect, the result is elaborate three dimensional worlds reminiscent of a set from a fantasy movie.
