In his project Archimusic, Artist Federico Babina transformed some of his favorite iconic songs into architectural drawings! from designboom:

the drawn edifices are placed on the musical staff as a metaphor for structural foundation. while some of the architectural structures resemble the musicians themselves, others reference popular album covers and titles, melodic tones, harmonies, chords and spatial progressions evident in the songs. in one example, a mostly white tower is capped by a black roof and row of windows, supported by a angled beam — the image closely resembles the familiar image of rock legend elvis presley singing into his microphone. another instance describes the stacked floors of a building as the undulating graphics from joy division’s ‘unknown pleasures’ album. take a look below for the full series and final ‘city’.
