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.
G raphic 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
