Federico Babina is an Italian architect and graphic designer who is known for creating illustrations by associating different disciplines such as architecture, art history, music and cinema. The impressions of observing the world through the eyes of a child are seen in his drawings and illustrations. The simplicity and clarity of his works are quite remarkable at first sight.
In his work called Archiplan, the artist, who analyzes and abstracts the architectural floor plans of the most well-known architects, inform us about how these architects work. Each architect finds different ways to express their ideas with drawings and this depends on their perception, sense of space and their intellectual improvements.
