We think you will agree, Carl Wiens’ illustration amazes in his recent book collaboration, Wild Buildings and Bridges authored by Etta Kaner and published by Kids Can Press. As the name suggests, this reference book dives deep into how architecture is inspired by the wild wonders in nature and with over 40 stunningly detailed illustrations by Carl, the connections are clear. Some of the most recognizable architectural wonders in the world are made even more interesting by their inspiration, from lotus flowers to bird’s nest, to honeycombs and waterfalls. Carl seized the opportunity to showcase his ability to render technical, conceptual and natural works seamlessly. Wild Buildings and Bridges is published as a children’s book however, under the superb art direction of Marie Bartholomew and Carl’s striking illustration, adults can’t help but be captivated as well.
