Federico Babina Illustrates Architect Portraits in Their Distinct Styles

Each architect style is different from the next, with some opting for predominantly curved lines throughout a building, while others are adamant on using straight edges for all structures. To capture the essence of each architect, Federico Babina has created a portraits series of people such as Zaha Hadid and Rem Koolhaus drawn in their own distinct architect style.

Zaha Hadid's portrait for example features mostly curved lines throughout, and is lacking any 90 degree angles. Koolhaus features a few more straight lines, but geometrically everything is quite uneven and not as structured as the next portrait.

The series is titled 'Archi_Portrait' by Federico Babina, who is extremely skilled at bringing out each architects idiosyncrasies (even the ones that the original architects might not even know about)!
