Famous Artists Styles interpreted into Architectural Forms

Federico-Babina-archist-4

Italian architect and illustrator Federico Babina  created 27 “paintingsprojects” which represent 27 different artists. ARCHIST is a playful interpretation of the expressive language and aesthetic of some of the most popular artists.

As Babina explains:

Art and architecture are disciplines that speak and lightly touch each other, the definition and function of the architecture are changing constantly with the development of contemporary art. In this exercise of style I took pleasure imagining architecture steeped of art, designed and constructed through the interpretation of an artist’s language..It is easy to find the art hidden behind an architectural shape or see reflected a geometry of a building painted on a canvas. It is impossible to conceive of the history of art in exclusion from that of architecture.
