What are the first words that come to mind when you think of the the Eiffel Tower, the Chrysler Building, the Burj Khalifa? Extraordinary? Impressive? Iconic?

What about…fun?

For Spanish architecture office and collective, PKMN [pac-man], a skyline isn’t just a symbol of a city’s identity, it’s also rich ground for reinterpretation and play. The firm has taken 4 iconic buildings from their hometown of Madrid and have – Transformers-style – turned them into 4 funky games. For PKMN, it’s all about taking ownership of these corporate-owned buildings, giving them back to the people who live amongst them.

Plus, there’s Ping-Pong and mini-golf involved. What’s not to love about that?

Check out all of the buildings-turned-games, after the break…
