EXPERIENCE IN ACTION!
DesignBuild IN ARCHITECTURE
DesignBuild is a method of instruction that students use to design and build actual projects at several architecture schools around the world, often in developing countries, but sometimes on their own doorsteps. With DesignBuild, students gain experience that goes far beyond planning and design. The focus is on temporary buildings and long-term projects, experimental approaches and interventions into infrastructures. With respect to the main aspects of research—dialogue—design—build, research contexts and processes of individual projects come under discussion. Constructive aspects and social exchange are also important. The book provides a critical overview of the most exciting DesignBuild projects worldwide.
All text is set Styrene by Commercial Type.
For the page and image numbers I designed a special typeface (also used for the logotype). It underlines the DIY idea of also the exhibition design.
There are two diffrent issues of the catalogue: English and German.
