Sometimes, even more than wanting to be a film’s beautiful heroine or superhero protagonist, viewers are swept away by a desire to inhabit the mansions, castles, swanky bachelor pads, or sci-fi landscapes they see on the big screen. Such architecturally minded film buffs will drool over Archicine, a new series of illustrations by Barcelona-based artist and architect Federico Babina, depicting iconic buildings and landscapes from classic films.
“I have always been fascinated by the relationship between architecture and cinema,” Babina tells Co.Design. “All people consciously or unconsciously connect a movie with the space in which the action takes place.
