Federico Babina's latest series titled 'Archist' imagines an alternate reality in which buildings are designed by artists. Babina resurrects some of the greats -- Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Mark Rothko -- and applies their general artistic aesthetic to a brand new medium.

The end result is a fun guessing game of who designed what, whether it be a mod apartment complex, a savvy office space or a surrealist-style museum. One thing is for sure: the world would certainly be a much more vibrant and lively place if these creative minds had worked on major metropolises instead of blank canvasses and the like.

Overall, Babina's series offers a refreshing re-conceptualization of some of the most celebrated artists of our time. Those who appreciate art will most definitely enjoy browsing 'Archist.' Stats for Artisan-Inspired Architectural Sketches Trending: Older & Warm
