The Architecture of Travel


As soon as I came across this awesome video on The ABCs of Architecture I was mesmerized by how buildings and architecture can help define place. As the building styles continue alphabetically, I love how the country flag appears, as well as location to help root it in context. Just as impressive is the way that each building type is simplistically illustrated in the same style, yet easily communicates the original form. The video is by Fedelpeye for OMBU Architecture, based in Barcelona, Spain.

Concept and Animation: Andrea Stinga, Federico Gonzalez

  • I Love this post! My husband is an architect and at first I thought it was going to be a video on traveling but instead on the buildings around the world! It was great, thank you! I found your blog through exploreworldtravel, and I love it! Thanks Anne, continue the great blogging!

    • Awesome, Karen! Welcome + happy you enjoyed the post. I worked for architects for 4 years, so in my mind buildings are another way to see the world and travel. The graphics are splendid too! …. Can’t say I know exploreworldtravel. Will look into it.
