What happens when pasta becomes a construction material? That’s exactly what photographer Aaron Tilley and set designer Gemma Tickle set out to do in their fun new series. The London-based team took the quintessential Italian food out of its intended context and created five different settings for five different types of pasta in order to pay homage to classic Italian architecture. The photo series was commissioned by The Gourmand, a UK food and culture journal.
Okay, so pasta, spaghetti and lasagna might not actually make practical building materials, but they do look surprisingly beautiful as miniature staircases, Roman columns and patterned floors. What do you think about the idea of pasta architecture?
