Forms of Practice is a 284 page book on the subject of German-Swiss architecture 1980–2000, by acclaimed architectural writer Irina Davidovici.
At the heart of the book are six case study buildings, selected by Davidovici, investigating the ‘forms of practice’ of six important Swiss-German architectural practices including: Peter Zumthor, Herzog & de Meuron, Valerio Olgiati and Diener & Diener.
Our book design adopts a rigorous typographic approach and structured grid which reflects the subject matter. A muted colour palette creates hierarchy within the text which cross-references footnotes alongside. Photography is reproduced in duotone with full colour to place emphasis on key images.
The book was designed for GTA Verlag, the publishing arm of the renowned Department of Architecture at ETH Zurich: Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture.
