A book about the philosophy from which Mecanoo creates their projects. It is full of images form different sources. So the first responsibility for me is to make them work together. To prevent the book form looking fragmented.
Another thing with images showing architecture is that the onlooker should have maximum access to the images. In architecture it is all about space, light and how it related to human beings. So that is what reproductions should bring too; transparency, clarity, three dimensionality.
