Book Description

23 July 2001
This work explores new ways of communicating architecture and three dimensional space through graphic design. An innovative graphic object in itself, the book challenges the potentials of print as a medium for communicating 3D. Using special Pantone colours and fold-out pages, it is based on the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Ljubljana, Slovenia by Sadar and Vuga Architects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hypermedia in a Handbook- All you need 14 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Created by the people at The Designers Republic(TDR), one of today's most daring design firms, this publication is taking to new ways of communicating architecture. By recreating a three-dimensional building in the form of a printed media, this study attempts to expand and challange new approaches of presenting and experiencing of architecture itself, based on the groups's own philosophy and research from over the past fiveteen years. 3D-2D is a beast, but relax, it's friendly to the explorer. TDR, treating the book like an electronic media, question our very habit towards reading, communicating design an information presentation, as this book can't be read - but vastly explored and requires more interaction than any CD-Rom presentation, you can think of. You will find yourself flipping the book around, any angle you can imagine, to find the last peace of information it contains - this is FUN and challenges the potentials of a book as a medium in itself: exploring vs reading, physical activity vs sitting still, rethinking vs consumption. TRY IT and if you like mimalistic design, too, this is a MUST HAVE! The Designers Republic creative team are Ian Anderson, Nick Bax, Matt Pyke, David Bailey, Abby Ribbands and Vicki Maesen.

1.0 out of 5 stars Adventures in pretentiousness 27 Nov 2002
As a young creative (an Architect as it happens), I was excited by the possibilities of this book, and bought it as soon as it came out. Indeed, had I read the review in one particular magazine I'd have bought it sooner! Imagine the feeling in the pit of my stomach when I looked through the pages thinking 'Do I dare admit that I think this is rubbish?'. Like the Emporer with his new clothes, I suppose I should have gone along with the whole thing but no, I passed the book around friends in allied professions. The general consensus was that the book was indeed a waste of my money. Back to Amazon it went.
My advice? Cut out some old test prints and dull photos, bind them roughly and stick a bit of warning tape on the cover. IT"LL BE FAR MORE CREATIVE!
