Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich’s latest work, Dalston House opens tomorrow in East London.

Resembling the facades of Victorian terraced houses that once stood on the street, Dalston House is located on a vacant lot on Ashwin Street, becoming temporary neighbors to Café Oto and Dalston Roof Park. Known for creating three-dimensional optical illusions, Leandro Erlich has placed a facade horizontally on the ground, while several large mirrors placed perpendicular to the facade create the illusion that visitors are scaling the building vertically.

As part of the 2013 London Festival of Architecture and Beyond Barbican, the interactive installation will be accompanied by a series of performances, workshops and talks focusing on relevant themes such as architectural history and perception. Dalston House can be found at 1-7 Ashwin Street, London, E8 and will be open to the public until August 4, 2013. – Babette Radclyffe-Thomas
