Babina has charmed us before with other illustrative architectural series including Archicine, a set of iconic buildings in film and Archibet, an illustrated alphabet of architecture. His latest Archist collection consists of 27 imaginary buildings that are drawn as cross-sections with human figures for scale against a textured paper background. Babina distills the most iconic and recognizable aspects of the artists’ styles into the bold building shapes and vivid colors.

“There is a symbiotic relationship and implicit partnership between Architecture and Art. Different art branches meet in many fields,” Babina wrote to Dezeen. “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.” Babina has plans to turn his illustrated architectural series into a book.
