Architectural Landmarks…

With Quirky Personalities

UK-based animator and illustrator Michael William Lester has developed a series of quirky personalities for some of the world’s most famous structures. The series ‘Character Building’ takes 20 well-known architectural examples from around the globe and brings them to life through animated gifs. <em>‘Good architecture interacts with its surroundings,’</em> Lester describes, <em>‘It gives off energy, sparks interaction and pulls so much life in that the building itself lives and breathes.’</em> From Marina Bay Sands in Singapore — whose three towers are seen lifting its elevated swimming pool — to the Burj Al Arab in Dubai — which swims in the Arabian Gulf — the quirky illustrations personify these landmark structures with humor and wit.
