Edited by Zak Kyes & Mark Owens
For this publication, nineteen international graphic designers have provided three contributions: a representative example of past work, and an 'inquiry' into architectural subjects serving as the foundation for a series of newly commissioned prints. This new work aims to re-examine the increasingly overlapping practices of graphic design and architecture and in so doing hopes to compile a selective genealogy of the architectural canon as seen through the field of contemporary graphic design.As a separately bound supplement "Forms of Inquiry Reading Room" contains a selection of publications guest-curated by a group of editors, publishers and designers. Contributions include independent scholarly publications, books, 'zines and other printed matter that exemplify graphically driven modes of inquiry, with a particular emphasis on those that investigate the connections between design and architecture. This title accompanies an exhibition at the Architectural Association in October 2007. Contributors to the exhibition and book include: Julia Born, de Valence, Dexter Sinister, Paul Elliman, Experimental Jetset, James Goggin, Will Holder, Hudson-Powell, Jurg Lehni, Karel Martens & David Bennewith, Metahaven, Mevis en Van Deursen, John Morgan, Radim Pesko, Project Projects, Manuel Raeder, Emmet Byrne, Alex Dearmond & Jon Sueda, and Michael Worthington.
