Have you ever struggled to understand a building or floor plan? Say no more. This gallery of illustrations can help you put a creative twist on boring geometrical sketches.

Barcelona-based Italian architect and graphic designer Federico Babina has unveiled his latest illustration series, PLANIMAL. In 25 clever artworks, Babina reimagines a variety of animals as common plans of architectural spaces, such as houses, museums and churches. He follows his imagination within a space to give it a surreal shape. Through his conceptual planivolumetric zoo, the gifted artist explores the connection between architecture and nature.

Federico Babina has a unique architecture-inspired style and subtle sense of humor that helps to tell the story behind each illustration. The artist admits that he tries to rediscover the world through the eyes of a child because they “are able to have a vision of things totally uninhibited and without the conditioning of the experience”.

He uses his creative powers to merge architecture with unexpected everyday life encounters. He has previously imagined mental illnesses as chillingly abstract house designs and illustrated houses for famous directors based on their distinctive style, among other fascinating projects.

So next time you see an architectural plan, try to think outside the box. Until then, you can check out the awesome architectural universe of Federico Babina.
