Federico Babina Turns Famous Artworks Into Buildings in “Archist”
We first caught sight the work of Federico Babina in Archicine, which saw the Italian architect and illustrator depict some of film’s most iconic architecture in a simple, graphic style. Now, Babina turns his pen to another subject — the fine art world — withArchist, re-imagning famous works of art as buildings. The artistic styles of the likes of Piet Mondrian, Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Marcel Duchamp and more have been re-interpreted based on how the illustrator thinks they would look as pieces of architecture. And he’s done a damn fine job. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but for our money, the Salvador Dali house wins for its surreal weirdness, while the sculptural Anish Kapoor building stands out for the fact that it’s got a giant bong on the roof.
