restrained, forthright, material-appropriate design, balanced composition and a love of detail characterise the work of meck architekten. in this monograph of their works their rigorous approach is translated into an apparently simple concept that’s balanced internally in a very complex way: the uncut images, are alternately placed to the left or right of the layout, setting up a subtle rhythm that runs right through the book. photographs of buildings, printed against a white background, alternate with explanatory texts and drawings on grey paper. a tangible, visible surprise in a book of perfect balance.
