An Animated ABC of Famous Architects

A charming list of famous architects and their most beloved works, one for each letter of the alphabet.

From Alvar Aalto to Zaha Hadid, this short film brings iconic structures to life through dynamic motion graphics. Barcelona-based Colombian graphic designer Federico Gonzales and animator Andrea Stinga do not complicate things. The project is exactly what it sounds like, and the images look great as GIFs, too.
