Pierre Koenig Book Redesign

The objective was to redesign the book layout to reflect architect, Pierre Koenig. The intent was to design a book whose structure was just as exact and sturdy as Koenig’s buildings were. The book structure was based around book design during the Renaissance. They had set structure with specific areas to never cross with image and text.
  • This is a redesign of the book, Pierre Koenig: Living With Steel by Neil Jackson, a book about architect, Pierre Koenig and the well-known homes that he built. When Koenig designed buildings, he wanted viewers to focus on the outdoor scenery not on the physical structure. The book layout reflects that concept by allowing the user to focus on imagery where the text almost fades into the background.
