Spider-Man, Wolverine and co are the inspiration for a new series by architecture illustrator Federico Babina.
‘Comic strips were one of my first encounters with architecture during my childhood,’ says Babina. ‘Travel – with the imagination of a child – through Gotham City in Batman or New York with Spider-Man helped the growth and education of a generation of architects.’
The superheroes’ outfits inform the colour palette of each interior in the 17-illustration ‘Interheroes’ series, while their weapons – including Thor’s hammer and Captain America’s shield – provide cues for the rooms’ furniture and lighting.
Adds Babina: ‘The authors of comics feed off architecture and contemporary cities and sometimes the comics lend ideas to architecture.’
