Pixelated Architect Portraits

Federico Babina Illustrates World Famous Architects in 8-Bit

— November 7, 2013 — Art & Design
The 'ARCHIPIX' series by Federico Babina Architect brings together world famous architects and some of their most iconic buildings, in pixel form. Although most of these buildings are well-recognized, the faces of the architects who designed them are not as widely known.

These funny pixelated portraits bring forth some of the most renowned architects like Tadao Ando, Mies van der Rohe and Rem Koolhaas. Although some of their architectural marvels were created decades ago, their works still live on today. The portrait series is a fun way to pay tribute to these designers and artfully communicate "the complexity of the forms and personalities through the simplicity of the pixel."

These simple, modern buildings and world famous architects are well-represented in this series of humorous pixelated art portraits.
