Architecture Design Inspiration

Archibet by Federico Babina

Archibet

The Barcelona-based illustrator responsible for Archicine and Archipixel,Federico Babina, has created a whimsical alphabet in the style of 26 particularly inspiring architects.

For Archibet, Babina modeled each letter after an architect with that shared initial. The Guggenheim wraps around a leg of “W” (is for Wright); wood and colorful panels form a grid in the shape of an “E” (for Eames). The references are as diverse as the architectures, but Babina’s style beams overall as colorful, retro, almost Saul Bass-ish.

Seeing the alphabet all together as a composite “Archibet City” is another surreal treat, and a snapshot of architectural history.
