Architecture as book design, book design as architecture


This was my dissertation I wrote exploring the relationship between Swiss designer Le Corbusier’s buildings & books. A design that works with the idea that books can be constructed with an architectural approach in mind.

The paper selection is based on the colour palette he used for the interiors of some of his buildings. Throughout the book, I have incorporated the two opposing styles of Le Corbusier: his earlier Purist style of block capitals & Didot text, with the expressive hand-written fluid style of his later work.
