Mordecai Mole the Building Thief / Julian Hector

Many great buildings...

A few weeks ago, we shared a whimsical architectural version of the children’s tale “Three Little Pigs” by .   Today, we have another great architecturally inclined book featuring Mordecai Mole – a thief who steals iconic buildings from various skylines.  Thanks to our reader Julian Hector – who also wrote and illustrated the book – for sharing it with us.  We hope you enjoy the storyline and the graphic illustrations.

Read the rest of the story after the break.

Can no longer be found,
because Mordecai Mole has them deep underground.
Tonight he is stealing a building by Ando,
To add to his stash of Foster,
Kahn,
and Piano.
The End.

    Glamorizing theft & selling to our children with “cute” propaganda. Sure, why not?

      Sorry but again: the story clearly reads “a building by Ando” so it can’t be the Carré d’Art, nor can it be the Neue Nationalgallerie. I haven’t been able to establish which of Ando´s buildings this could be, but there’s one thing for sure: it’s supposed to be a building by Tadao Ando.
