Countries and their famous landmarks depicted as machines

Federico Babina, the Barcelona-based artist who brought us ‘ARCHIST‘, is back with another architecture-inspired series of imaginative illustrations. This time he’s set on creating giant machines with the monuments and landmarks of different countries in his collection called ‘ARCHIMACHINE’.

The series depicts 17 machines, each representing a country’s architecture and culture. For Babina, the architecture in each machine, in each country, acts as a crucial cog or gear in the shaping of a nation’s identity and culture. ‘We make our buildings and afterwards they make us’, Babina explains.
