Architecture and Love Meet in Giordano Poloni’s Illustrations

Climbing in Love - Giordano Poloni 1

Two of my favourite things are architecture and illustration so it’s no wonder that I love these illustrated buildings by the Italian illustrator Giordano Poloni. Giordano currently lives and works in Milan where he creates both illustrations and motion-graphics for clients such as WIRED, Random House, Vice Magazine and Smith Journal. These images come from an ongoing series called “Climbing in Love” which Giordano describes as “a personal series about architecture and love stories”.


Made digitally, the work has a truely vintage feel and highlights a number of impressive buildings from around the globe. What I love most about this work is the small little narratives hidden within them. For example, at the top of this post you can see a local Milanese man shouting down to a pretty lady on the street below. In the images below that you can see a far more tragic portrait of love splatted across the footpath outside the Conestoga Building in Pittsburgh. It’s a great collection of pictures and I like how it looks at love from a variety of different angles.



The series consists of ten works. Currently six of them can be viewed on Giordano’s Behance page here. Go check them out!
