The ABC of Architects

New or old to architecture, this video’s for you.

The ABC of Architects is a fun video that re-imagines the alphabet with famous architects and their most renowned buildings. For instance, Santiago Calatrava is ‘C’ and Le Corbusier is ‘L’ (hey! my 2 favorites :D) so that either name can count and no legend gets discounted.

It’s a quick 2-minute watch, spiced up by some clever animation that syncs with the old-timey song. You may even learn a building or two, and like me, be inspired to fire up the ole ‘Google’ tool to see more photos of them. I even did that to pull out some screenshots of my favorite architects/buildings. Enjoy!
