Columbia Abstract 07/08

Sagmeister Inc., New York, New York, 2008

Description

Columbia University asked the studio to design its annual publication Abstract, a yearbook for the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.

The content is divided into three different color-coded books that insert into each other to form their own pyramid-shaped architecture. The smallest book contains only photos of staff and students; the middle book contains only text; the large book showcases the students’ work. An extensive cross-reference system directs users to related content between the books.

Juror Notes

So beautifully considered with black-and-white covers and colored stain. It’s a book to walk around like a sculpture; it needs to be appreciated from all sides.
