3D architecture stamps


“Netherlands Institute of Architecture has teamed up with the Dutch postal service to create a set of stamps that, when held up in front of your webcam, display 3D models of five unbuilt works by Dutch architecture offices. ”

Augmented Reality Stamps

The collaboration between the TNT and NAI has resulted in an unusual project – a series of postage stamps. What’s special about these stamps is that they integrate Augmented Reality (AR). You can hold up the stamps in front of a webcam and see the buildings in 3D. This AR app works through a website www.toekomstinbeweging.nl (Dutch only). The project also demonstrates that cutting edge media technology can even fit onto something as small as a postage stamp!
