Each architect carves his signature into the urban fabric of cities. The Brooklyn-based illustrator, Paul Tuller, created a series of six images crowning the world’s starchitects with their most iconic structures. The “kings and queens” of architecture are displayed wearing their creations as hats (crowns) on their head. It’s quite a strange idea, but a very creative one at the same time.
Architecture and fashion are both very crazy arts, so displaying buildings as hats might not be the strangest way to look at them. Zaha Hadid Architects proudly wears her Heydar Aliyev Center, while Daniel Libeskind wears his extension of the Denver Art Museum. The other architects, Peter Eisenman, Rem Koolhaasm Bjarke Ingels, and David Adjaye are also crowned with their most famous works.
Fashion designers inspire architects and vise versa; these illustrations are just another way to merge the two arts together while keeping the architects personality strongly present.
