Cool Graphic Thing: Travel Back to the '80s With These 8-Bit Starchitect Portraits

Digital portraits by Federico Babina via Design Boom Italian architect Federico Babina has taken a break from, you know, designing actual structures and interiors to carve time to create the obvious: 8-bit pixellated portraits of folks such as Frank Gehry (above), Zaha Hadid, and this year's Pritzker Prize winner, Toyo Ito.

Architecture has been the subject of cartoonish imagery many times before. In 2011, an illustrator re-imagined The Three Little Pigs as a tale starring Philip Johnson, Frank Gehry, and Frank Lloyd Wright; last year a cartoonist turned iconic midcentury works, including Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's Farnsworth House, into a comic strip; and the storyline for the MoMA's first children's book, which debuted last month, revolves around a young architect named Frank. Anyway, more from Babina, below. · 8-bit pixellated starchitect portraits by federico babina [Design Boom]

Chicago Opens Its Doors
