Alphabet of architects

A is for apple. B is for ball. C is for crowbar. On reflection, we went to a rather strange nursery.

Illustrator Federico Babina, the artist behind the marvellous Archipixel (8-bit architects) and Archicine (buildings from cinema) series, has created an even more unorthodox alphabet chart, the Archibet.

The famous buildings of (you guessed it) 26 architects have been incorporated into building typography, according to the first letter of the archtiect's name. Or first letter of their surname. Or in the case of X, the last letter of their surname (X, ever the awkward letter).

Here are a selection of the most iconic designers to feature in Archibet. For more from Babina, head to his website.
