In Greek mythology, the chimera is a fire-breathing hybrid creature-part lion, part goat, part snake. This three-headed monster embodies a concept: disparate parts can create a uniform whole.

Chimera is the name that Chicago architect Marshall Brown gave to his 2016 exhibit of photomontages, each showcasing his creation of intricate worlds from samples of published photos of buildings. The project inspired Daisy-O’lice Williams, an associate professor in the School of Architecture & Environment, who has reimagined Brown’s art as an assignment for her architecture students.

Williams specializes in architectural visualization and explores the role of digital collage in the student design process.
