Odyssey: Architecture & Literature

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Book Design / Entire Books / 2010

This book is called Odyssey, but in fact it has nothing to do with myth. The compiler of the book invited nine famous writers to visit their favourite piece of architecture and write a story related to it. The designer used various elements to express different concepts: the abstract point, line and plane for the concept of roaming; and pieces of paper of different sizes and types for the concept of buildings. The reserved format was used to arrange the stories, while the sticker-on chapter pages represent the relationship between architecture and literature.
