    On May 5th 2017, the BDA (Bund Deutscher Architekten / Association of German Architects) awarded the BDA Prize for Architecture and Urban Planning in Saarland 2017. The prize is awarded every four to eight years.

    Our catalogue displays all 42 submissions on bright white paper (Heaven42 Absolute White) next to a range of indices, texts and lists on light grey paper. Each paper uses different typefaces, namely a combination of PX Grotesk for the white and Suisse Works for the grey sections.

    A map of the south-western German state of Saarland with all projects, both winners and submissions, stretches from the cover flap right onto the title page. That general focus on location data (also in the project spreads) transforms the exhibition catalogue into a handy travel guide to “good architecture”.
