Vancouver House – A Total Work of Art

Back

This print medium realises the task of creating a marketing portfolio to publish and promote the first Canadian architectural project by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG). At the centre was the objective of expressing the philosophy of a “Gesamtkunstwerk” (total work of art). To support this concept, an artful, contemporary portfolio was created to house a system of books and folders. The highly distinctive, sculpted debossed covers, highlight a “pixel expression” of the building’s facade, with copper and silver ink symbolising the core building materials of copper and aluminium.
