Miniature Storefronts Preserving Tokyo's Past

| Art , Tokyo

Christopher Robin begins each project by going on Google Street View and clicking down the side streets of Tokyo until he finds a storefront that he likes. However, the replication stops here. Working largely from his imagination, Robin draws up plans for the storefront, but at a miniature scale of 1:20. Working with a combination of materials and techniques, the designer meticulously fabricates and assembles his creations with the utmost attention to detail. From rusting corrugated steel facades to manhole covers out front, nothing gets overlooked.
