Federico Babina has re-imagined a playful alphabet of architecture inspired by 26 world-famous architects. Each of his illustrations features a building with the first letter of the architect’s name transformed into a structure resembling their design style. The series is called Archibet.
“Each letter is a small surrealist building that becomes part of an imaginary city made up of different shapes and styles, all speaking the same language of architecture,” he told Dezeen.
With lofty names like Eames, Zaha Hadid and Le Corbusier, his selection of designs is as diverse as it is star studded. And while each illustration is a careful study of each architect’s work – sometimes emulating one building, other times their general design language – Babina says the hardest part of the project was selecting which 26 architects to feature.
