Botanist and designer Macoto Murayama has created “Inorganic Flora,” a collection of intricate blueprints of numerous flowers. Murayama buys different flowers from roadside stands and then dissects, photographs, and sketches them, according to Smithsonian Magazine. Then he creates detailed digital 3D models of the flower and its parts and makes a beautiful, annotated blueprint of each bloom. More of Murayama’s amazing floral blueprints can be viewed at Frantic Gallery.
