Division is a one year research thesis that explores how and why divisions happens in our societies.
HOW CAN WE CONNECT DIVIDED PLACES?
The work of the Institute without Boundaries in 2014/15 was guided by this question. In this book, you will find samples from our fieldwork, community interactions, results from charrettes, and design project proposals for Connecting Divided Places.
About the book design
I took the word "division" and used it in every element I could imagine. Exploring grids, spacing, contrasting black and white images. The content had a journalistic feel and I wanted to book to be like an oversize fashion magazine mixed with a newspaper look.
