Great architecture has the unerring ability to move us and inspire us in myriad different ways. There are the type of famous buildings (opens in new tab) that everyone should seek out, and there are also buildings that are such a product of their time that they are inspirational for reasons other than purely from a design point of view.
Graphic designer Federico Babina (opens in new tab) has decided to celebrate the work of these architects by creating an alphabet, with each character representing an architect whose name starts (or ends) with the same letter. The design of the letter itself also reflects the work of that particular architect.
The inspiring typography features a wide range of styles and you can see the full 'Archibet' over on Federico Babina's website (opens in new tab). See if you can guess the architect!
