From Architecture to Gorgeous Case Mod

by Alisha K.

There were several breathtaking buildings designed for the recent Olympics in Beijing, among them the Digital Beijing building, a glowing temple to the technology that powered the Games. The building itself is a work of art, so it’s not surprise that it has inspired others toward similar creations, like this incredible PC case mod.

The Digital Beijing building takes its inspiration from a circuit board, so the concept is certainly well-suited for containing a computer. Modder Nick Falzone (aka Greensabbath) built this beauty out of ebony and maple from a design rendered by a friend… who also happens to be architect Gert Swolfs, who did the original renders for the building design itself.

This is quite a case, but with a powerful team behind it, we can expect no less. Falzone named the completed case Chiaroscuro, an Italian term used in art for work that strongly contrasts light and dark. It’s a name that works here on several levels.
