The BLDG BLOG Book

Client: Chronicle Books / BLDG BLOG

In Geoff Manaugh's visionary online publication BLDG BLOG, he considers architecture from a broad and speculative perspective. Military installations, weather patterns, and sci-fi urbanity are all fair game. When the opportunity came to create a book expanding on the blog's areas of inquiry, the same inventive and questioning approach was applied. The book takes its chapter structure from common themes of the blog—like underground structures and redesigning the sky while also distinguishing itself from the blog. Where the role of a blog is to be constantly shifting and fresh, the book provides a scholar's record. The design supports that purpose by being clear and crisply modern, and by lending an air of typographic elegance.
