Blueprints of giant soup cans aside, how do you think Andy Warhol would have coped as an architect?

How about Roy Lichtenstein, for that matter, or Pablo Picasso, two more artists whose visual DNA lends itself uniquely to building design.

Well wonder no more. Graphic illustrator Federico Babina, integrating the bold trademarks of some of the greatest visual minds of the last century into works of architecture for alternative way of surmising an artist's legacy, has reimagined just this.

And if nothing else, he shows us that all that stands in the way of Damien Hirst becoming a full-time Bond villain is planning permission.

Feast your eyes on the novel illustrations below:
