a new st(uttg)art
urban planning in stuttgart is a misnomer. urban chaos might capture it better. now the people of stuttgart, tired of their city’s mistreatment at the hands of the authorities, have got together and formed an association. it’s called ‘aufbruch stuttgart’ – or roughly, a ‘new start for stuttgart’. fittingly, its logo presents a radical departure from standard reading mode: the two syllables of each word have been split and reconfigured. they can be read from top to bottom or upside down – sending a clear signal that something has to change.
