Tradizione, Costruzione is a collaborative series between set designer Gemma Tickel and photographer Aaron Tilley for British foodie magazine The Gourmand. They used pasta to create five different architectural settings as tribute to Italian architecture.

Various pastas are used to mimic the different architectural forms. For a staircase, they stacked bunches of spaghetti. For a Roman column, they arranged cylindrical pasta. They used wide-flat lasagne to make tiled roof – though I’m not sure how strong that will hold against typhoons. For curtains, they hung hundreds of black-sepia spaghetti. And for floor tiles, dozens of rigatoni arranged in a neat pattern.

As far as structural integrity goes, that depends on the owner’s appetite.
