Edited by Harry Gugger, Aurélie Blanchard, Gwendolyn Kerschbaumer, Götz Menzel
Published by Park Books and laba EPFL
Language: english


March 2014
ISBN: 978-3-906027-34-0
Softcover, 310 × 230 mm, 160 pages
Typeface: Plain by François Rappo
Print: Druckerei Grammlich, Pliezhausen


Book concept and design: Ludovic Balland Typography Cabinet with Siri Bachmann


The book presents the 2 semester-work of the architecture master course of Harry Gugger at the EPFL. The three-part structure of Barents Lessons reflects laba‘s methodology:

Part one [Analysis] presents a detailed, inter-disciplinary analysis of the region under four research themes and resulting in a "Territorial Constitution" for Switzerland.

Part two [Trip] documents a six-day field trip in the region in December 2013.

In part three [Projects] 10 architectural projects are presented as a synthesis of the knowledge and experience gained.

Maps and graphics conceived and designed especially for this book — some of them on a large- size fold-out page — visualize the analysis, striking photographs document the field trip, and numerous plans and images show the architectural projects.

The editorial project THE DAY AFTER READING is created by Ludovic Balland, as part of the "All Possible Futures" exhibition running January 14 to February 13, 2014 at SOMArts Gallery in San Francisco, California. This project deals with how people remember information perceived in the daily media and aims to find out about personal reading habits. It illustrates remembered "leftovers" of the everyday consume of newspapers and visualises individual processing of published, written "facts." One San Francisco personality was interviewed on each of the first seven days of the exhibition.

Seven people were asked about their impressions and what details they remember from all of the news they had read the day before. The memories of the people portrayed were recorded and directly transcribed. The transcript served as the material to design and typeset one individual newspaper page to be printed on a large-scale format the very same day. Each of these pages were put on display at the exhibition venue the next morning, creating a series of seven different pages, which evolved during a oneweek period.

This eight-page newspaper has been printed and distributed in San Francisco. Each page presents one personal view of San Francisco readers and illustrates their perception of everyday media. The layout structure in five parts allows for the comparison of memories about stories, visual details, and advertisements, as well as individual reading practices and personal contexts. A documentation about readers.

Winner "Most Beautiful German Books 2013"


Statement of the jury "The Most Beautiful German Books":
"Schon der Einstieg in diese zu visueller Poesie geronnenen Architektenmonografie ist außergewöhnlich: Auf dem breiten Buchrücken lesen wir nicht nur den Titel, sondern auch den hierhin gestellten Waschzetteltext in der gleichen nüchternen, aber feingliedrigen Typographie, die das gesamte Buch trägt. Die Titelprägung über abstrakt monochromem Bildausschnitt auf dem Vorderdeckel ist elegant silbern unterlegt und kündet vom disziplinierten, aber extravaganten Geschmack von Architektur und Buch. Und auch die Möglichkeiten von Inhaltsverzeichnissen werden erweitert: Hier erstreckt es sich über 29 Seiten, verbindet die unter Mottos zusammengefassten Inhaltsgrüppchen mit Interviews, und erhebt diesen für gewöhnlich schlicht funktionalen Bereich eines Buches regelrecht zur literarischen Gattung. Dies ist aber erst der Anfang. Das Buchkonzept hält die Präsentation der einzelnen Bauwerke möglichst textfrei, die Fotografien auf matt saugendem Papier – meist monochrom, manchmal farbsättigungsreduziert – hinterlassen ihre Eindrücke durch die kontemplative Inszenierung. Und zwischen den Projekten ein kaum größer denkbarer Kontrast: Auf Dünndruckpapier als Ausklappseiten laden die Konstruktionszeichnungen geradezu zur Werksspionage ein. Und das Buch hält dafür sogar noch ein Werkzeug bereit – ein Lesezeichen mit den Skalen der verschiedenen Maßstäbe. In den hinteren Buchteilen folgen Beschreibungen in Text und Lage- oder Detailplänen und die Vorstellung des Architekturbüros samt Mitarbeitern."

Statment of the jury "The Most Beautiful German Books" :
"Man hat den amerikanischen Schutzumschlag abgenommen und ausgebreitet, die detaillierte Seekarte überflogen, das Inhaltsverzeichnis am Rand der Karte gesichtet und widmet sich nun der gefälzelten Klebebroschur. Man liest noch kaum zwei Sätze, bezirzen die Fülle und Attraktivität der Karten und Diagramme die ordnungsliebenden visuellen Sinne. Die wissenschaftliche Neugier, das ästhetische Bedürfnis und die Gierde nach Visionen werden angereichert. Man sieht, schaut, staunt, fragt, begreift – schlägt sich zunächst immer noch durch die drei so unterschiedlichen Kapitel, die so klar durch das gestanzte Kopfregister getrennt sind, dass es klarer nicht geht. Nach der ersten Orientierung glaubt man, eine tausendseitige Studie durchblättert zu haben; es sind aber nur 156 – plus fünf eingeklebte Faltkarten. Das architekturwissenschaftliche Projekt beschäftigt sich mit den Ressourcen der arktischen Barentsee und breitet nicht nur eine komprimierte Analyse aller möglichen Umweltfaktoren aus, sondern zeichnet auch in einer fotografischen Reise das Bild der landschaftlichen Stimmungen und klimatischen Lebensbedingungen – die teils sehr kräftige, unmittelbare Typografie überträgt die Atmosphäre von Rauheit, Kälte und Unwetter auf die gedruckte Schrift. Der dritte Teil stellt die architektonischen Projektentwürfe vor, die den Zugang zu, den Umgang mit und den Aufenthalt in der Barentsee möglich machen sollen. Die Evidenz dieser geopolitisch relevanten Studie ist so hoch, dass das Inhaltsverzeichnis zur Marginalie wird."

Designed as a diary, the season-preview of the Theater Basel presents all seasons's premiers as well as general information on the theater. These information face a conversation in form of a facebook sitcom edited by Ed Fornieles and Max Luz which is called "Happy Days in Basel".

The reader is invited to follow both contents parallel which may lead to surprising collissions. While the theater track goes on for one season (10 months from september 2012 to june 2013), the facebook sitcom runs only 3 weeks. So the left pages, dedicated to the facebook sitcom, follow another timeline than the ones of the Theater Basel. The exciting feature is the interaction of the two narrations: The pages on the theater are naturally descriptif and focused on information while the facebook sitcom mixes (in the end) fiction and reality.
For the sitcom, Ed and Max asked many different actors of Theater Basel as well as random people with a completely different background to join the conversation. Using this a a basis, the conversation is mixed up with visual material to re-edit and create a fiction - "Happy Days in Basel".

Although the layout of the sitcom-conversation follows other rules, the same grid and typeface is used for the whole book. For the theater pages, we designed and used some visual elements in order to structure the content. This new set of forms is also used for poster and other medias. It is part of our re-design for the communication of the Theater Basel. The typeface "Theater Basel" is a new font based on an older typewriter source, named "Jury-Regular". Keeping the geometric forms of the typewriter enables us to generate an unexpected rhythm and a strong visual structure of the text once composed. The new font of the Theater Basel is used for every media.

These two parts of the book offer the reader different possibilities to acces: while following the sitcom conversation for one or two pages you can easily pick up for instance information on the different season tickets from the opposing page. Or starting with the descriptive text on 'Othello' you'll be surprised by some posts on the sitcom pages of Happy days in Basel.
It's a book you may like to open more then once!

Review N°2


Edited by Emanuel Christ, Victoria Easton & Christoph Gantenbein

Winner "Most Beautiful German Books 2013"


The book presents the semester-work of the architecture office Christ & Gantenbein at the ETHZ. The content is, also visually, divided in three chapters: essays, a catalog of buildings (each displayed with floorplan, technical information and a picture) and finally a sequence of pictures that document the building in its urban context. This enables the reader to acces the different information and atmospheres just as he pleases.


Statment of the jury "The Most Beautiful German Books":
"Ein Lehrbuch für Architekten: die Typologie urbaner Bautenstrukturen am Beispiel von vier Metropolen. Sein Gebrauchswert zeichnet sich dadurch aus, dass die Buchgestaltung in ihrer ästhetischen und didaktischen Qualität die Untersuchungsmethode der Studie unter der Maxime der Vergleichbarkeit visualisiert. So erklären sich das Buchformat und der Kontrast von Kleinteiligkeit und Großzügigkeit – im typologischen Teil auf den rechten Seiten kompakte Information in geringem Schriftgrad als Konsultationsgröße mit untertourigem Zeilenabstand – und auf den linken Seiten die essenzielle Informationsquelle für den Architekten, luftig präsentierte Grundrisse der typischen Bauwerke. Im zweiten Teil des Buches sinkt das Auge des Betrachters durch eine üppige Strecke doppelseitig komponierter Fotografien in den Stadtbildern der besprochenen Großstädte: Lackmustest für die vorher ausgebreiteten Thesen. Nüchterne Informations- und opulente Schauwerte sind in dieser Publikation nicht zu trennen, und sie steigern die Evidenz dieses architekturwissenschaftlichen Unternehmens. Es ist ein Buch für Liebhaber rigider Ordnung und Reduktion, die dennoch nicht auf Fülle verzichten wollen. Erstes Indiz dafür ist das besondere Inhaltsverzeichnis auf verkürztem Blatt: eine Synopse dieser ganzen Bauten-Typologie."

The book displays the content in a lexical mode. Pictures are edited in different forms: longer essays start with picture-sequences which serve as an introduction while in shorter texts the pictures are directly placed at each column. Double-sided bleed off picture-sequences in earth- colour indicate breaks between the different chapters.

The idea for the catalogue was to overprint the preliminary design drawings of the pavilion with a text explaining the concept and the project of the pavilion itself and some pictures of Iwan Baan, that he took during the exhibition in Shanghai. The overprint was made in magenta and black.
By overlapping these elements, an interaction is created between the beauty of the technical drawings, the narrative aspect of the project as well as the reality of it shown in the photographs of the pavilion in use.

The monograph presents the work of of Herzog & De Meuron between 1997 and 2001. Selected projects are displayed in 3 different forms: archive-data, plans and photographs. In the archive- or project-chapters sketches and different design-stages of buildings are presented, embedded in a personal and a scientific text. The chapter "plans" shows large-sized black-and-white- plans of each project. The last chapter, photography, presents all buildings in their urban context. This clear structure enables the reader to find a very specific content. All chapters are, according to the content, especially visual designed. In doing so, the book offers three different approaches to the spectacular projects of Herzog & De Meuron.

Throughout the essays, the image captions work as a link to the images, they are set big, as if they were filling the space of an actual image. The three categories of content are set in three different layouts based on the same grid.

Winner "Federal Swiss Design Awards 2011"
Special distinction "Type Directors Club New York"


The program for Stadtkino Basel includes the timetable for all films as well as two essays on the subject matters, a summary of each film and corresponding photos or images. In order to organise all the different information, we propose the programme in two parts: The first part provides the film calendar. Each spread gives an overview of the week. The calendar is divided into two columns flanking the spread. These columns are perforated which enables readers to remove the pages they are interested in and to put them into their agenda or wallet. In the second part, the films are listed according to the two monthly themes. The essays on the themes, a summary of each film, its technical data and the schedule can also be found. The two parts of the programme are interactive. The idea is to offer the readers three different ways of choosing their film. They can either be tempted by the full-sized images, browse and select via the calender or discover interesting topics by browsing the programme.

stanley


Design: Ludovic Balland with Yoann Minet, 2012


'Stanley' is a new typeface by Ludovic Balland, inspired by 'Times New Roman', one of the most classic typefaces of the 20th century.

Stanley Morison, after criticizing the British newspaper 'The Times' of being typographically outdated was then commissioned to create a new font. In 1932 the typeface was released under the name 'Times New Roman' and would become a superlative typeface due to its refined aesthetic and legibility qualities.

Sharing comparable qualities with its inspirational precursor, 'Stanley' offers excellent legibility and incredible sharpness at very small sizes. The drawing of the typeface is characterized by wide and sharp counter forms as well as short ascenders and descenders, generating neat text arrangements. The very graphic shape of the serifs benefit from a maximum of contrast. With five cuts, 'Stanley' fulfills versatile needs from footnotes to headlines. The particular drawing of the capitals gives a unique tone to text and can be used to create an additional typographic hierarchy.

CORPORATE TYPEFACE


Design: Ludovic Balland with Yoann Minet, 2012
Photography: Mathilde Agius


When I was asked to redesign the whole visual identity of the Theater Basel in 2011, the main goal was to make the theatre more visible in the context of the city. I therefore proposed a mainly typographical concept, also to create a contrast with the usual theatre poster aesthetic, that often makes use of stage images. The theatre font was designed for this concept, it needed to be easy to read in both small and big sizes. We knew that the font would be used for long texts as well as for big poster headlines. We wanted to create a font that expresses the classical antiquity period, where the Greek and Roman societies flourished and wielded great influence throughout Europe and the Middle East. The western theatre originated in Athens if we consider Aristotle to be the first theoretician of theatre (384-322 BC). The font offers very classical drawings and open counter-spaces, making it sharp in small sizes and very elegant in big sizes.

5TH BERLIN BIENNIAL
corporate typeface


Design: Ludovic Balland, 2008


The concept of the 5th Berlin Biennial corporate Typeface was to design a typeface
that connects objects and places of Berlin directly to the letters, creating a collective
memory of the city.

The objects we used are from the archive of the german "Werkbund - Museum der Dinge", Berlin, a museum founded in 1906 that collects plenty of produced as well as unproduced objects. The places we used are photographs of famous and unfamous places that we took during a trip through the city. By mixing images of the city and objects of this archive, we generated a font that isn't just postscript data, but a time document related to the citizens.

JURY
monospace typewriter font


Design: Ludovic Balland, 2002


'Jury' was designed in order to have a new monospace typeface that combines serif-lower cases and sans serif uppercases. Having this two different styles in the same cut, allows to create two different textures in the same text, which can be very helpful in many different typographical situations.

The very low ascendant and descendant make the setting of very compact text blocks possible. The font also contains an underline cut.

The new visual communication of the "Theater Basel" is based on the corporate typeface that was especially designed by Ludovic Balland. It's combination with a set of geometric elements creates a sharp visual language that enables to structure, shape and identify all media of the theater. The corporate typeface is based on an older typewriter source—by keeping the structure of the typewriter we generate an unexpected rhythm and a strong visual recognition.
