The ABC of Architects

Who says introductory classes in Architecture have to be dull? Not now that architect Andrea Stinga and visual artist Frederico Gonzalez have composed an animated alphabetical index of the most important architects. From Alvar Aaltoto Zaha Hadid, The ABC of Architects rounds up 26 architects with their best known buildings, turning architectural history into a Technicolor-inspired nursery rhyme, where jolly buildings now come to life dancing to the sound of a catchy sing-along.

Regardless of whether you know the featured architects, or you don’t, you will enjoy this. So next time you study for that architecture test, this can provide a fun brush-up. However, it comes with a warning: Press play at your own risk, you might not be able to get the jolly tune ”The Butterfly from Eugene C. Rose and George Ruble” out of your head for the rest of the day.
