Artist Federico Babina has now created nearly a dozen architecture-themed illustrations, each exploring the intersection of architecture and a related design field such as cinema and contemporary art. In Archimusic, Babina took 27 hit songs from famous musicians and transformed them into architectural renderings. Some of the renderings borrow heavily from album art while others abstract from the vibes given off by a musician’s characteristic style or are even personified to look like the artist.

Babina’s selection of musicians run the gamut from classical music, such as Bach, to rock legends like Jimi Hendrix, and even to more contemporary music like that of Radiohead and Amy Winehouse. “Music and architecture are intimately joined by a cosmic connection,” writes Babina. “They both are generated by an underlying code, an order revealed by mathematics and geometry.”
