Archisearch the Paper Edition

Archisearch tPE (the Paper Edition) is the printed version of the website, a platform for architecture and design. The concept of this project draws elements from the world of architecture and design in an attempt to convey them in the experience of reading and browsing a leaflet. The large format and the rice paper cover is a direct reference to the experience of the architect and designer over the drawing board, while at the same time typography takes the role of the blueprint aiming to achieve a sense of archival recording. Without major typographical breakthroughs -as is commonly practiced in magazine design- except from the alternation of chapters, we create a flowing typographic system, where text and images act as blocks, within the topography of the paper. Variations between thick and empty spaces lead to a fixed system that produces a huge variety of layouts that serve the main theme while keeping the same design style.
