Artist Federico Babina created a series called Archipix that portrays famous architects as if they were vintage video game characters.

The series features architects like Frank Lloyd Wright, Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry and Jean Nouvel in pixelated 8-bit graphics. The architects are also featured standing next to their buildings.

In the series, Frank Lloyd Wright stands next to the Guggenheim Museum, Zaha Hadid is next to the Vitra Fire Station, Frank Gehry stands next to the Walt Disney Concert Hall, and Jean Nouvel stands next to the Torre Agbar.

The series also features other architects like Arata Isozaki, Richard Meier, Mies van der Rohe, and more.
