Portuguese studio LIKEarchitects used 1,500 metal paint cans to build “Andy Warhol – Icons,” a temporary art museum inside the atrium of Lisbon’s Colombo Shopping Mall. The museum displayed 32 original art works by the iconic pop artist, over a three month period.

Inspired by Warhol’s usage of humble household objects in his paintings, the architects eschewed the typical white walls of galleries, and purposely used the empty cans to create a simple, but memorable structure to frame the works.
