Archicine by Federico Babina

In his series “archicine”, artist Federico Babina illustrates iconic film buildings. Inspired by landmark constructions from some of our favorite films, he redesigned them into the central focus of beautiful movie posters.

The illustrations represent iconic film buildings — from Rear window by Alfred Hitchcock to Le Mépris by Jean-Luc Godard or Dogville by Lars von Trier. The scenographies imagined, realized and built to tell stories and reveal these architectural spaces not just as a background, but as an additional protagonist in the movies.

Archicine drawings show the creative vision of some of the most important directors in the history of cinema:
