Japanese artist Takanori Aiba, a former maze illustrator for the Japanese fashion magazine POPYE, spent much of his career as an architect. Finally, in 2003, he merged his two interests—maze-building and architecture—to produce these intricate bonsai tree houses.

Japanese to the core, these miniature architectures combine the organic nature of bonsai trees with labyrinthian architecture. Jorge Luis Borges would be proud. More pictures of his intricate sculptures can be found on his Flickr account here.
