Swedish firm Studio Esinam's new print series depicts "Elevations" of architectural landmarks across the globe. Using minimalist line drawings, the illustrations attempt to "capture the unique feeling of various cities around the world".

Meticulously recreating the facades of landmarks in Berlin, Brooklyn, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, London, Paris, Stockholm, and Tokyo, the growing collection of prints reframes technical drawings as works of art. By distilling iconic facades to their barest and most essential elements, Studio Esinam aims to direct "attention to details that mostly pass unseen."

"By covering aspects that may otherwise pass unnoticed we hope to let people discover new details and ways to appreciate architecture, deepening the experience of the places and spaces we already love as well as finding new ones to explore," write Studio Esinam's founders, director Josefine Lilljegren and architect Sebastian Gokah.

The latest additions to the project see Copenhagen's distinctive styles converted into monochrome illustrations. Presenting the city's rich history of ornate 18th century architecture alongside its diverse Modernist buildings, the new collection is also accompanied by facts about the featured designs.
