Illustrated Alphabet Creates A City Out Of Architectural Language [Pics]
This quixotic city-in-a-poster makes an alphabet out of unusually shaped buildings that look like they could have been designed by the famous architects.
You may know the styles of the world’s most famous architects, but can you match them with their names? Barcelona-based illustrator Federico Babina’s architectural illustration projects, like his 8-bit portraits of architects, are as fun for architecture nerds as they are educational for newcomers. The intricately detailed visual language of ‘Archibet‘, which was assembled using techniques ranging from 3D modeling to simple hand drawing, displays an in-depth understanding of all the diverse paths and processes that got these luminaries to where they are today. They may have come from all corners of the globe, but the universal language that has brought them together is architecture.
