Small Architecture and Celebrity Owner

Architecture and their famous celebrity owners. Explained in more detail below.

This is the work of Romanian Artist, Researcher and Illustrator, Ioana Pioaru.  She puts together the two categories mentioned above, in a way I have never seen before.

Amazing building design and accurate portrait show the link between these famous people and their homes.  There are no actors singers or TV entertainers in this list that spans back more than a few decades.

Some of the buildings don't come with their respective owners and still no less interesting.

A fascinating concept that Pioaru executes perfectly.  Have a look through this post and the links with history they come with.
