Chicago artist Matt Bergstrom is known for his meticulous Chicago architectural paper models. His series of postcard build-your-owns lets you cut out and create tiny models of 31 Chicago landmarks--from the Wrigley Building and Marina city, to the El train lines and the Water Tower.
But if we're talking about Chicago food as architecture, there's nothing more iconic than the Chicago-style hotdog. Bergstrom's paper model hotdog--complete with mustard, relish & onion-topped hotdog, poppy seed sprinkled bun, perfect pickle spear, sport peppers and tomatoes, is a wonder. I had so much fun photographing it. Stay tuned for how to get your own model soon!
