The ABC of Architects: 26 Famous Buildings in 100 Seconds
An adult-fascinating and kid-friendly overview of 26 works by architectural greats from the last 100 years. Watch as this fantastic collection of animated iconic buildings comes to life in less than two minutes.
Graphic designer Federico Gonzalez worked with architect Andrea Stinga to create this instructive-yet-comical tour de force, animated in the style and set to the same sort of tune you might expect from a vintage cartoon.
Aalto, Barragan and Calatrava lead ultimately to Xenakis, Yamazaki and Zaha – their aim was to cover a worthy structure from each of the 26 architects, and diversify their selections in terms of style and nationality.
The creators’ only lament: that they could not include more works – but as any architect will tell you: sometimes having limitations and guidelines (like a 26-building limit, in this case) helps you focus on what is most important, and create the best design possible.Comment on Facebook
