Portugese illustrator André Chiote created the series of architectural illustrations by simplifying images of recognisable buildings to emphasise their form and shadow.

The minimal graphics are slightly mottled and executed in faded colours to give a vintage feel.

Each poster is printed with the building's name and architect in typography chosen to compliment individual designs.

  • Rami

    The Arabic is all fipped!

  • Harout

    In the fifth image – Museum of Islamic Art – I don’t get if he is trying to be artistic or if it is a computer glitch. It should be written “متحف الفن الاسلامي” in Arabic.

  • Dali

    It's Whitney.

    I can’t believe they’ve made a typo on the Whitney one! Oops! Nice idea though.

  • Khurram S.

    I’d like to pipe in and be the third person to say that it’s a shame to see a beautiful poster undone by the disjointed Arabic. Even if it looks stylish, it isn’t quite Arabic text that way.

  • André Chiote

    They have all been corrected. Thanks anyway for your comments.

  • Conor

    It’s pretty poor that the designer released the designs with awful errors before proofing them, and only corrected them after comments from the public.

  • Expat

    Bank Gothic typeface? Are we 12?
