These images by Federico Babina shows the essence of some emblematic architectural works, 23 small pieces that build what is not seen. Outline an architecture through a narrow viewpoint that turns it into a movie poster that shows the author and his work.

Federico Babina in his work Archizoom, shows us these suggestive and insinuating posters that leave the imagination and allows us to recognize the architect author of these works.

"As with a zoom lens of a camera I approached some architectural works in order to depict a detail or some small elements.

Focusing on a component to talk about the whole. Outline an architecture through a narrow viewpoint that turns it into a movie poster that shows the author and his work.

As in a cinematic close‐up that allows you to emphasize what is off‐field frame.

These images represent 23 small pieces that build what is not seen. The idea came seeing an image of an actor’s eyes. This shooting range is sometimes more powerful than a face or a whole body, and it is able to tell intense emotions and allows us to recognize the protagonist. I wanted to do the same with some emblematic architectural works. Approaching them with a zoom of the imagination to depict only certain parts of a building which are, however, able to tell much about the aesthetics of the author.
