Course Description

The Course will introduce students to the potentials of the book as a medium for the communication of architecture. Editorial conditions and design rules have changed since the book shows its formerly unique media position with new and challenging offers of digital media. The Course will analyse the differences between analogue and digital media and their ability and limits in expressing and transforming architectural atmosphere.

The course will focus on the book and its exclusive attributes. The seminar will feature the caracteristics of the book as an object and its materials, the structure, content, the handling of text and image, typography, composition, rhythm and sequence.
