Rep Your Favorite Famous Buildings with These Architectural Enamel Pins
We’re always looking for new ways to celebrate our favorite designers. Even if we can’t afford a home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, we can still surround ourselves with Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired decor and architect-themed candles. Now, we can show our love of our favorite famous buildings with these intricately designed architectural enamel pins.
DROP-A-PIN is a husband and wife duo who work as an architect and a graphic designer. They created a collection of enamel pins that celebrate the world’s most iconic buildings. From Shigeru Ban’s Cardboard Cathedral to Frank Gehry’s Walt Disney Concert Hall, they’ve honored every kind of architecture around the world.
“For the past 5 years we have been traveling around the world, documenting buildings we’ve loved,” the DROP-A-PIN Indiegogo page reads. “About a year ago we were looking for a pin of a building we liked, and when we couldn’t find one, we decided to join forces and create it ourselves.”
The pins are tiny enough to fit on your lapel, but they’re surprisingly detailed. Right now, there are five pins available on Indiegogo: Nakagin Capsule Tower, Villa Savoye, Case Study House No. 8, Geisel Library, and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. As time goes on, DROP-A-PIN will release more designs, which you can browse on their Instagram. They set a goal of $600 but have already raised over $4,400.
Pay homage to Metabolism and Kisho Kurokawa’s Nakagin Capsule Tower, the world’s first modular capsule building.
Show your love of modernist architecture and Villa Savoye, one of Le Corbusier’s most influential buildings.
If you’re all about Eames, you need Charles and Ray Eames’ Case Study House No. 8.
Brutalist architecture buffs and bookworms alike will appreciate William Pereira’s Geisel Library.
No architectural enamel pin collection would be complete without Frank Lloyd Wright, so picking up the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is a must.
Each pin costs just $10 over on the DROP-A-PIN Indiegogo page. There’s a very limited supply of each one available—either 60 or 85, depending on the design—so order your favorites now before they sell out.
