Após se deparar com um debate no site Reddit em que usuários estavam alimentando o fórum com imagens que pareciam ter saído de uma obra do diretor Wes Anderson, o americano Wally Koval decidiu concentrar essa ideia no Instagram. Reunindo fotos de lugares do mundo inteiro, ele e sua noiva criaram um perfil que vai fazer qualquer fã de rosa millennail, cores pastel e decorações simétricas se deliciar.
A estética de filmes como O Grande Hotel Budapeste e Os Excêntricos Tenenbaums está representada nos posts que ainda contam com legendas explicativas sobre os lugares fotografados. “Cada fotos que postamos no feed passa por um processo cuidadoso de curadoria para termos certeza que ela combina com a estética como um todo”, explicou Wally à revista Dazed. “Isso significa que a imagem conta com um bom nível de simetria, um toque de cor pastel e, mais importante, algo único ou atípico”.
Ao mesmo tempo em que eles buscam eles mesmo por locações incríveis, tanto externas quanto internas, também aceitam sugestões por meio da #AccidentallyWesAnderson ou pelo e-mail hi@accidentallywesAnderson.com. Então, se você possui alguma foto que acredita que poderia estar em um filme do diretor americano, vale tentar participar do projeto — afinal, o próprio Wes já disse ter visto o perfil e curtido a ideia.
_________________________ Muttern 12 | Stockholm, Sweden | c. 1914 • • Muttern 12 is a classic example of Swedish national romantic building/block that was built between 1913 – 1914 in the Hornstull area of Stockholm, Sweden • • Operating primarily as a residential building with a few commercial shops on street level, the structure was designed by Swedish architect Ivar Engström and built under surveillance of building contractor C. A. Schönander • • In the time this was built, the forms and shapes of Art Nouveau were gradually considered artificial, and replaced by a genuine and honest architecture founded in older Swedish building tradition • • The national romantic style is characterized by dominant, closed facades of bricks or bricks with high tiles, to tie the walls to the buildings from the 14th and 15th century Vasa Dynasty in Sweden • • This style is apparent in Muttern 12, especially on the ground floor where raw bricks are visibile. Overall, the national romantic architecture was inspired by Gamla stan (Stockholm’s Old Town), Visby and Vasa castles • • Since 1980 the building has been operated by the housing cooperative Spettet • • Know more?

_________________________ Military Museum of Finland | Helsinki, Finland | c. 1881 • • The Military Museum of Finland is the central museum of the Finnish Defence Forces and the national special museum of military history • • Founded in November 1929 the museum is the tasked with collecting, preserving, researching and displaying artifacts and other heritage related to the development of the Defence Forces of Finland, Finland's military history and to the history of weaponry • • Prior to it’s foundation, Finnish military history was first shown to the public starting in 1908 at Valtion historiallinen museo (The History Museum of the State) and later in 1918–1919 at the National Museum • • In 1939, just before the Winter War against the Soviet Union, the Military Museum was closed down and the collections were moved to storage locations around Finland. Even the museum's office had to be relocated from Helsinki because of the Soviet air bombings in 1944 • • During the war, the Museum organized a series of exhibitions and touring exhibitions around Finland and even Sweden as a means to gather funds for war stricken families, to show how it was to fight on Finnish side at the front, and to lift up morale among citizens • • The collections of the Military Museum cover over 200,000 artifacts.

_________________________ National Tobacco Company | Napier, New Zealand | 1931 • • The Rothman Building, also known as the National Tobacco Company, is regarded as one of Napier’s most elegant commercial buildings • • Designed by J.A. Louis Hay after the 1931 earthquake that destroyed Napier for German tobacco tycoon, Gerhard Husheer who had founded his company in 1922 • • Despite the quick and economical rebuilding that took over Napier, Husheer spared no expense for his new building, demanding original plans sent by Hay to be more elaborate and fancy • • The resulting design mixes Art Deco geometry with Art Nouveau ornamentation as the building is comprised of rectangular forms that recede from the arched entrance. Bringing some native New Zealand influence to the predominantly European design, Raupo bullrush roses have been carved into the entrance and the sides of the building • • This process of using simple geometric forms then enlivened with applied decoration gives reference to Joseph Maria Olbrich's Secession Hall Building in Vienna. Additionally the implementation of native Raupo and roses for the decorative forms indicates Hay was aware of the work by Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Henri Sullivan whereby applied decoration was integrated with regional characteristics • • Between 1956 and 2001 the building was purchased and owned by Rothmans of Pall Mall and subsequently known as the Rothmans Building. During this period the building fell into some disrepair but the current owners 'Big Save Furniture' have restored it to original condition and allow public access to the front rooms during business hours • • Know more?

The neo-Baroque Art Nouveau structure was completed in 1901, and at the time the largest and most expensive swimming pool in the world, as well as the first public indoor pool in Munich • • The Volksbad has a tower, in which reserve water is kept, which also keeps the water pressure constant via two large pools • • The larger pool was originally the "men's pool", the smaller served until 1989 exclusively as a ladies' pool. Both basins are separated along an axis, which is a mental continuation of the path to the swimming pool • • The architect Carl Hocheder was inspired by the design of a variety of models: Roman thermal baths such as baroque sacred buildings, hammams and mosques, all held together by contemporary Art Nouveau elements • • The façade is structured by window reveals and cornices on Pollinger Kalktuff. The rich baroque interior decoration includes wide staircases leading down into the pools, murals with marine motifs, stucco, a bronze statue in the main basin, ornate iron railings and wooden balustrades, as well as a lavishly designed clock • • After a construction period of four years, the official opening took place on 1 May 1901. The engineer Karl von Müller, who had been elevated to the peerage by the Prince Regent , was present • • The most extensive restoration took place 1972-1999 and affected all parts of the bath • • Know more?

#AccidentalWesAnderson Stadtbad Lichtenberg | Berlin, Germany | c. 1928 • • The Stadtbad Lichtenberg (also called Hubertusbad) is a bathing and swimming facility that opened in 1928 in the Berlin district of Lichtenberg, which has been closed since 1991 due to construction defects and lack of funding • • The inauguration of the pool took place on February 2, 1928 by the Berlin Mayor Gustav Bos, under the slogan "Public health and fitness" • • During the Second World War , the building was damaged by a bomb blast on the northwest side, but was still functional • • Since organized popular sport was not immediately approved by the victorious Allied powers after 1945, the bath was initially empty for some time • • The SMAD did allow a makeshift use of the bath and shower department but a regular swimming operation was not possible because the supply of hot water could not be secured. In the meantime, the small hall served as a potato storage for the Army • • In 1999, a citizens' initiative to support a rehabilitation and recommissioning of the pool was kickstarted, however it unfortunately was not successful • • On June 30, 2001, the communal city pool became the property of the real estate fund, which was again unsuccessful in reviving or attracting investors over the following decade • • Know more?
