In PeBe, or Pablo Benito's architectural illustrations, geometric lines and forms are brought to life with bold and saturated colors. PeBe's work is hard to miss with bright blues and yellows juxtaposed against various candy hued shapes and forms. Noticing that he drew inspiration from mid-century modern architecture and desert landscapes I thought I'd reach out and see what he might bring to the table in a collaboration for 'Design Studies'. I had an idea which architect, of the three I proposed, he would choose - Albert Frey.
Pablo grew up in Barcelona where he graduated from the University of Elisava. He went off on his own and started his own studio in 2014 and balances his time between commercial work for clients such as Redbull, La Caixa and Repsol with his personal creative work.
When asked what drew him to Frey's work he states "I chose Albert Frey because he was not a common architect. His houses weren't based on eccentric material or luxury waste. His work was more environmentally friendly and realistic. I'm also not going to deny my deep love of everything mid-century, nor the dreamlike landscape of Palm Springs."
