I know when you see my title, my post is really not what you are thinking. No cute little envelopes, hand made from magazines or pastel papers here.
Would you ever guess that the inside printing of security envelopes could be used as the basis for architecture? Jürgen Mayer H. is a German architect who has spent years collecting paper with any type of encryption pattern. These motifs have inspired many of the buildings that Mayer has designed, including the Hassel Court of Justice in Belgium.

Architizer’s blog is where I found this obscure information. I like the way blog author Kelly Chan phrases it:
“a brick and mortar rendering of digitally obscured information”
See Mayer H. Architects website for more unique and inspired architecture: http://www.jmayerh.de/
“C&O” is the design of my graphic design business envelope. We thought it was fun to have the opportunity to custom design the security tint, but I never thought of it as architectural … until now.
