French travel blog Menilmonde has re-created iconic Parisian buildings and landmarks with superimposed sketches, hoping to challenge pre-conceived attitudes towards architecture

Dubbed 'Archi'llusion', the artistic project was created by founders Clair and Max, who re-envisioned the buildings and monuments of the French capital by adopting a special technique.

The duo created illusions by capturing the lower stories of buildings and completing the rest of the visual by hand-drawings.

The famed monuments which got an artistic renovation include Gare du Nord, the Louvre museum, Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris and the Eiffel Tower.
