For this New York based Architectural office I was invited to work on the separations. Printing was done in China. Architects usualy like a very clear and open reproduction of images of their buildings. For them it is essential you can wander with your eyes through the rooms.

With this book something special was to be achieved. We would print some chapters on strongly coloured papers, or silverfoil paper, or add a silver ink layer to some of the images. For instance where we printed on black paper. The black of the paper would function as the black in the architectural design. So the paper colour or shine should be part of the reproduction of the images. Could I make this work?

Well, I did, on black, orange and green paper and on silver foil. And it came out exactly as everybody hoped it would.
