ARCHIZOO {zoo animals in architectural forms} a Federico Babina’s project

ARCHIZOO is a series of illustrations by Spanish architect, Federico Babina.

In the series, he reimagines zoo animals in familiar architectural forms. A giraffe becomes the Eiffel Tower, a seal becomes London’s landmark Gherkin building, and so on.

When explaining the inspiration behind ARCHIZOO, Federico explains, “When I was a child I wanted to be an architect and now that I’m an architect I would like sometimes to go back to my childhood. Our mind is capable of collecting, recording, and storing millions of images. One thing that always interests me is the association that we can do between these images.
