Federico Babina is at it again! Twenty-seven imaginary houses that correlate to the best and most famous film directors, from Jim Jarmusch to Lars Von Trier. The varied styles of the directors are intrepreted as architecutral designs, creating charming images. Babina believes that it's similar with architecture details, where even the most subtle of details helps create an imprint of the creator.

We are always happy to see Frederico Babina’s artsy and colorful collections combing architectural elements and inviting themes. “Archimusic” is another contemporary approach to transform 27 popular songs by David Bowe, Miles Davis, Pink Floyd, The White Stripes, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart…to name a few, into graphic design. Representing the horizon with a music stanza, the composition morphs together displaying a fun illustrative building idea to represent many musicians.

We featured Italian architect and illustrator Federico Babina's Archiset series of illustrations depicting iconic architecture portrayed in films. He is back again with "Archist" an equally fun project that illustrates imaginary buildings inspired by famous works of art. What would a Warhol, Picasso, or Mondrian-designed house look like?

This fun new series of illustrations titled "ARCHICINE" is the work of Federico Babina and depicts iconic architecture portrayed in film. "Scenographies imagined, realized and built to tell stories and characters. The architectural space in the film is not just a background but is transformed as an added protagonist. Movies have the ability to transport us to different worlds and lives and let us live and breathe real or fantastic architecture."
