Alien Architecture: Modern Buildings Recast as Extraterrestrial Ships

Composition, color and contrast and go a long way toward
reframing photographic subjects, in this case: making familiar
architectural forms seem like parts of dark and looming alien

German photographer Lars Stieger has a knack for capturing
ordinary building surfaces, materials and details and rendering
them uncanny, especially in this Spaceships series photographed
across Europe.

Glass-and-metal cladding in the fog can easily looked like the
curved hull of an otherworldly vessel in the right light,
while intersecting geometries taken out of context call
the posters of science fiction classics to mind.

Stieger’s subjects range from the inside of an old
to Olympic parks — often large, public and
industrial works of design that already appear a bit strange
even under normal circumstances. Check out more from this
series as well as his other photo sets on Behance
and Instagram.
