Federico Babina abstracts the work of architects in illustrations Italian illustrator Federico Babina honed in on details of buildings by architects including Le Corbusier, MVRDV, Zaha Hadid and Mies van der Rohe to create the abstract graphics of this poster series. Named Archishape: Architecture Shapes in Minimalist Clothing, the new series by Federico Babina reduces forms typical in the repertoire of 25 architects into a series of interlocking geometric shapes, using colours he feels are indicative of each style.

Miró Foundation roof informs typography for 40th anniversary The distinctive shapes of Catalan architect Josep Lluís Sert's Joan Miró Foundation building in Barcelona are interpreted as a set of graphic symbols in celebration of the organisation's four decades of operation (+ slideshow). The anniversary identity and communications were created by design studio Mucho, which has offices in Barcelona, Newark, Paris, San Francisco and New York. Tasked with creating "a very recognisable and iconic symbol", the studio purposefully avoided using visual elements that would repeat the Miró Foundation's existing corporate identity. "We were asked for a campaign capable of relating the centre to the people of Barcelona, through relevant dates of the last 40 years," the studio explained in a statement. The foundation, which opened in 1975, showcases local artist Joan Miró's work alongside that of other contemporary practitioners. It has hosted exhibitions from artists including Jackson Pollock, Olafur Eliasson and Mark Rothko.
