The design of the book “vier hundert vierzig seiten” (four hundred forty pages) follows the maxim of radical reduction in order to bring the book’s content to the fore: the presentation of the “best architects 13” award. This strict focus on the 96 award-winning works conveys how all that counts in this book are the pages and the content they show. The design therefore boldly diverts the reader’s attention away from the other book elements. The publication moreover features an open spine and is ensconced in a slipcase of refined appearance.
