Why is Sir Foster so enthusiastic?

The Italian architect Federico Babina is famous for his exercises of imagination. The intent is to look behind both the geometry of the architecture and the appearance of protagonists of contemporary architecture.

He uses simple geometric shapes, juxtaposed without the illusions of perspective where diverse elements could be superimposed, made transparent or penetrate one another, while retaining their spatial relationships. For example in Archiportrait project each architect is its architecture, and in the images each architect is made of architecture. While in Archizoo famous works of architecture that build up a zoo where animals are made and composed by architecture.

 

This time one of the protagonists of Babina's works, Sir Norman Foster, is not an illustration, he is real! Babina met him in person. And the archistar seems so enthusiastic of what he is watching! Maybe another new project? We are curious and you?
