When Geometry is Edible
Any architect will tell you that the primary basis of architecture and geometry is to create a beautiful end, whether it’s about building a house or building. Just to jog your mind a little; what do you think can happen when an architectural designer becomes a baker?
Well, you get Dinara Kasko who graduated from Kharkov University Architecture School in Ukraine; nobody not, even her close peers could tell that she would pursue a totally different career: architectural baking. But she did, maybe because it just sounded cool and a little sweeter.
Having discovered that her true passion is in creating sweet desserts, Kasko is now putting geometrical ideas such as the Voronoi Diagram into practice to create a final product, which is not only tasty and edible, but also well-designed and beautiful.
The Ukrainian architect-turned-pastry chef admits that
she has to balance all the geometrical factors including volume, texture, color, proportion, form and other core architectural elements to create these stunning desserts that are nearly too beautiful to eat!
“Just like a beautiful building, a beautiful cake certainly needs preliminary geometrical and architectural design, so I have to connect architecture, geometry, design and patisserie to achieve this,” Kasko says.
Honestly speaking, most of her creations are geometrically cool and sublime. They might even deserve a place inside a contemporary art museum. Be sure to have a visual feast on her Instagram.
