Foodies are rampant in today's urban metropolises, but this time, instead of talking fish tacos and foie gras, we're talking buildings. Nicholas Blechman, art director for the New York Times Book Review, has reimagined some of the world's most famous landmarks as food in his delightful series Gastro-Architecture. From drawing the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica as a lemon juicer to noting the striking resemblance of Kohn Pedersen Fox's Shanghai World Financial Center to a can opener, Blechman has created an entirely new type of architectural review.
