‘I have never liked the lack of life in the architectural representations that are often aseptic, clean and neutral. I enjoy imagining what life would be like in these static images. they are comparable to still life paintings.’

 

the aim of architecture is to design a space where people can live and carry out their activities, yet many renders and illustrations particular to the field are devoid of life and dynamism. italian artist federico babina has composed 17 vignettes for the ‘ARCHILIFE’ series, adding renowned cinematic stars from alfred hitchcock to audrey hepburn to architect-designed interior spaces — the always glamorous marilyn monroe lounges within the famous mies van der rohe farnsworth house; a bathrobe-wearing marlon brando waters a plant at frank lloyd wright’s ‘fallingwater’ home. ‘in these pictures I try to exalt the ‘banality of everyday life’ of famous performers employed in simple actions that interact with the space that hosts them’, babina describes.
