Construction Vehicles Designed as Gothic Architecture

Belgian artist Wim Delvoye creates large-scale sculptures of vehicles typically found on construction sites, using an intricate lattice design. Inspired by Gothic architecture, the massive laser-cut Corten steel structures break the boundaries between constructing tools and resulting art. They appear to be one and the same, each truck mimicking a sort of mobile cathedral.

Bulldozers and cement trucks are not typically referred to as examples of beauty, but Delvoye’s meticulously crafted creations feature the silhouettes of these commonly brute vehicles as delicately designed works of art. The detailed patterns found in every inch of each piece adds to their admirable beauty. Each work has its own personality, though they share their unconventional aesthetic. There is something very recognizable in their construction, almost like they’re imitating a working class citizen dressed in fine attire.
