The Genius of 90's Anime Architecture

July 21, 2017


This article features some fascinating insight on the wonderful art direction behind some of the best 1990's anime that has influenced countless amounts of artists, concept design and even elements into the music scene of Synth/Vaporwave and Cyberpunk. 


My personal fascination from the aesthetic always came from genius movies such as Akira, Robotech, Bubblegum Crisis, Macross and fighting games in early arcades i.e King of Fighters, Capcom vs SNK and a few others. I think there's something to be said with the amount of attention to detail and world building that revolves centrally around background architecture in most animes. The Art Deco references are uncanny and it's always such a pleasant easter egg when I catch an animator who clearly studied the works of Ruhlmann.
