in the publication of ‘architecture and disjunction’, swiss architect bernard tschumi wrote ‘architecture is the ultimate erotic act. carry it to excess and it will reveal both the traces of reason and sensual experience of spaces. simultaneously.’


with this in mind, italian illustrator federico babina brings us ‘archisutra’, a series of 12 images that situate between architecture and kamasutra. babina highlights the traces of sexuality and sensuality hidden between shape, forming a collection of positions and postures made entirely from the interplay between line, color, volume and form. while many architectural constructions voluntarily or involuntarily include sexual symbolism, the ‘archisutra’ series makes a significant effort to convey these themes in a more vivid and engaging way.
