Architects are, of course, best known for their aesthetic sensibilities. But as a series of illustrations by Barcelona-based architect and graphic designer Federico Babina (whose work we’ve featured several times on Flavorwire) reminds us, some of history’s greatest architects also had a way with words. ARCHIQUOTE collects some of their most insightful and inspiring utterances, from Charles and Ray Eames’ “Take your pleasure seriously” to Mies van der Rohe’s immortal “Less is more,” in text that evokes each icon’s unique style. Click through for a selection of highlights from the series.
