Ten comics that will change the way you look at architecture

Through a long-distance dialogue, cartoonists Paolo Bacilieri and Enrique Bordes list their 10 all-time-favourite titles, from Chris Ware to The Eternaut, where comics and architecture collide.

Paolo Bacilieri: Domus asked me to make a list of 10 architecture-themed comics to read during this coronavirus lockdown. I’ve decided to partner up with my Spanish colleague Enrique Bordes, architect and author of the essay Comic, Arquitectura narrativa (Ediciones Cattedra, 2017).

I’ll start with the first 5 titles: three classics and two very recent books.

Then it will be his turn.

Are you ready, Enrique?
