From afar, this may look like real lava flowing from a window, but it’s actually an art installation by Spanish architects David Olivia and Elisenda Planas of SP25. The two artists call it “a layer of incandescent lava that expands [with] flames that arise from the night nothing, from the inside of a mysterious abandoned building and spread, occupy and invade the entire space that surrounds it.” More than 10,000 pieces of origami was used cover nearly 100-square-meters.

“The installation occupies almost 100 m2 of surface with a continuous flow of lava illuminated by a series of lights positioned at various points. Creating the look of incandescent liquid rock, the installation is further brought to life with the use of smoke machines,” according to Design Boom.
