In November 2018 the Baukunstarchiv NRW (Architecture Archives of North Rhine-Westphalia) opens its doors, thus making the collection of significant architecture of the post-war years accessible to the public. The opening will be accompanied by a first exhibition showcasing 80 works.
The catalogue designed for the exhibition Eins Zwei Drei Kunstarchiv (“One Two Three Architecture Archives”) tells the story of the long history of the building that reflects the architecture of the post-war years. Not only that, but also the founders’ visions of the future and their desires for the future of the building. The slants of the floor plan did not only provide the creative direction for the logo. The dynamic line is also picked up in the catalogue using italic headings and lines, as well as a slanting cover flap. A book for browsing, skim-reading, and wandering off.
