Well-known Buildings Turn Into Abstract Blocks Of Colour In Federico Babina’s Archishape Series | I on Decoration Blog

Italian illustrator Federico Babina honed in on particulars of buildings by architects such as Le Corbusier, MVRDV, Zaha Hadid and Mies van der Rohe to produce the abstract graphics of this poster series.

Named Archishape: Architecture Shapes in Minimalist Clothing, the new series by Federico Babina reduces forms common in the repertoire of 25 architects into a series of interlocking geometric shapes, utilizing colours he feels are indicative of each style.

Complex buildings are broken down into a pattern of lines and shapes that Babina says are representative of “the formal alphabet of diverse architects” – so Gerrit Rietveld’;s De Stijl designs are condensed into blocks of yellow and red, even though the kind of Alvar Aalto’;s Savoy Vase takes centre stage.
