Federico Babina transforms some of the most architectural works into scenography
Federico Babina’s ‘ARCHIPLAY’ transforms some of the architects’ famous projects into scenography illustrations.
The illustrations include the works of famous architects like Le Corbusier, Louis Kahn, Rem Koolhaas and Zaha Hadid.
The project can be described as a virtual theater that creates an imaginary play and describes it with scenography, light, shape and object. It would transfer the viewer to another universe through some of the most famous architects’ work.
“In these illustrations, I try to transform some famous architects in set designer of his own work,” explains Babina. “I imagine spaces set up for a performance of a show that relates the architects’ work. Stage machinery that simulates architectural illusion, which draws from the language of the characters to represent an architectural metaphor. The architecture dress up, wears makeup and is transformed to play itself in a show where the volumes and forms write the dramaturgy and relating stories.”
